This view is always mutable depending on the time of day, season, weather...This time around, when I shot this image a few weeks back before the arrival of forest-fire smoke, blue mountain ribbons gradually flattened and disappeared into the horizon contrasting with the pronounced texture of the evergreens in the foreground. 🌲 🌲 🌲
Long summer hikes lead to snowy turquoise magic like this!
Happy goat frolicking in a field of...some mountain flowers I can't identify. 🐐🌼 Can goats be happy? Well, it anthropomorphically looks like it's smiling, and that's good enough for me! 😉
I TOLD you that goat was smiling: so basically, this is the equivalent of Satan, but happy! 😉
It's summer. But we still get a glimpse of the harsh terrain, in which these wild goats survive; here—a mother endearingly leading her baby along remaining snow in the mountains. I just wish I could witness them in their full glory once instead of covered in patchy shed hair. Yes, it's summer, after all.
