A Curious Chipmunk

HSNP Goat Rock Trail Chipmunk

I saw a blur at the side of the trail followed by a shuffling of Leaves.  When I reached the spot where it appeared I had seen movement nothing was there.  An old Tree stump sat among the Leaves and I leaned to the side to see if any being was hiding on the other side. Nothing.  As I moved forward to leave I noticed a head pop up and begin peeking at me from within the stump.

I took a few photos and began speaking with the lovely being peering at me. Every couple of seconds her head would rise up a bit further.

As I stepped away she vanished and I called out “stay safe”! She popped back up and stared at me LOL

Tiny Butterfly Wing Leaves Awaken to the Spring Sun

Tiny Butterfly wing Leaves awaken to the Spring Sun.  Glowing in the warm rays of season’s change they reach up into the blue.  Delicate beauty gently unfurling to herald the revival of the Forest. Buds of emerging seeds as if kissed by a pink sunrise glimmer in the new green.

Happy Spring!
Love to ALL,
Lee

Last of the winter snow in Hot Springs National Park 2015

I am wrapped in the embrace of Nature’s snow dance as a light breeze swirls softly caressing me. Glittering particles of ice slowly melt in the warmth of the morning sun as I climb higher into the mountains. Winter’s final performamce for 2015 in Hot Springs National Park.

The Hiking Serenity of a Snow Covered Trail

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There is an oasis of peace on the Forest trail as snow blankets the ground and muffles all sound.  Snowflakes falling in rapid silence erasing my foot prints from the pristine landscape to create hiking serenity. Bliss… my only companions tiny songbirds foraging for berries on branches and digging beneath the white blanket of winter.

Love to ALL!
