We’re midway between the Summer Solstice and the Fall Equinox today–six more weeks left of real summer. I think the light’s already changed a little in the mountains.

Mama moose! She had a calf near her.
Bob Ross painting come to life.
Even the wetlands look a little dry and tired.
See what I mean about the changing light?

(Photos are from the Silver Lake/Lake Solitude trail. All the other amateurs on the path–crowding the moose like idiots–are cropped out.)
