We’ve got some nice fall colors around Edgemont this year, too bad the blah sky continues. Where’s a Ponderosa Sky when you need it? At Summit Tree Camp I could almost fool myself into thinking that there was a Ponderosa … Continue reading

On these cool, crisp autumn mornings I think a hot breakfast sandwich at Howling Rock is just the ticket. Don’t you? Lots of soft light today because of high clouds. Along Red Canyon Rim Trail the soft light muted the … Continue reading

How about this? Yup, still some Prairie Coneflowers flowering along Red Canyon Rim Trail. Of course, the Gayfeather flowers continue to brighten the drab, sooty ground. Beautiful morning for hiking and a great afternoon that started out with taking Abigail … Continue reading

Up on Cheyenne Valley View, dad and I relaxed under a beautiful Ponderosa Sky. I think that I should name this chair spot, Slant V Chair Spot because of the distinctive Ponderosa trees behind the chair. On a further note … Continue reading

It sure wasn’t a Ponderosa Sky this morning even though the sun could be seen. I guess you’d call it soft lighting, which was apparent at Summit Tree Camp during our hike. Summit Tree Camp sure has a terrific view. … Continue reading
