Another Tuesday, Another Walk

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

So, yesterday I went for a walk on my lunch hour.  I was glad I did because I was tuckered when I got home from work, so all I did was a little housework, watering the garden, and making dinner.  I was tuckered probably partly because I walked up Mt. Tolmie for my walk (I’ve posted about that walk before), but mostly because of other stuff which I won’t go into here.

Anyway, I thought I would share with you some of the things I saw on my mountain trek!

Flowers.  I thought these pink ones (peonies, perhaps?) were unusual.


The last of the Camas.


And I saw lots of reluctant-poser bees along the way.


Here I am taking the trails up.




Lots of the grass is brown.  It’s been very dry here, and doesn’t look like we will get rain again for a long time.


Everything continues to be early – here are blackberries flowering.  This walk will be quite delicious in a month or two.


A few views from the top.  It’s hard to see here, but I am looking towards home and there is a cruise ship in the distance.  The cruise ship tour bus (well, one of them) was driving up to the top of Mt. Tolmie just as I was heading down.  Tourists!



And finally, resting at home after another long day…
