|North of Carolyn's cabin|
The sprouting understory is hiding a view of a dirt road and several large trees that have rested on the forest floor for some years now. In another several days or perhaps a week, the tree canopy will be so full that I won’t be able to see the sky.
My view to the western mountains was gone last night when I got home to the cabin. Oh, I can still see a broken outline of it, but that’s mostly because I know where to look. Ah, winter, where were you? Summer, you’ve come too soon.
The good news for me is that I had a bit of rain yesterday. Not enough to get truly excited about, but when the rivers are already down 75% from where they should be at this time of year, even .1 inch is noteworthy.
Last evening near sunset, ahead of the rain but after the sky was already overcast, I was returning to the cabin when the sky turned the shade of a spring rose in bloom. I was hoping to reach someplace where the foreground would be reasonably interesting before I took a photo, but when the color started to fade, I simply stopped along the road where I was and took a shot of it. Color like that shouldn’t be forgotten, even if the foreground is forgettable.
