Beautiful Sitings Along the Trail 5


One more thing I noticed while scaling a nearby mountain at the end of August.

Once I cleared the treeline, I found myself amongst bamboo shrubs – called sasa – and wild grasses. Grasshoppers found this ideal terrain, which is not surprising but their coloring made me crouch down and watch them play a bit. I called these guys Desert Storm grasshoppers because they had multiple shades of khaki and brown, making them look like miniature foot soldiers heading for the Fertile Crescent.
