This morning could not have started any better. I am not sure when "the rain" is supposed to arrive, but we are under blue skies and bright sun shine. The ground is sparkling in the morning dew. I had to capture the dew on this dandelion. It looked so delicate.
I believe it is going to be a busy day on the mountain. If I weren't already up here, I would lace up my boots and take a hike. I think I will do that anyway. It will be nice day for a stroll and seeking out junco nests. I love finding the nests and watching the chicks as they get bigger by the day. Hopefully, I will be able to take some photos of some. The high yesterday was 67º with a low of 50º. It is perfect hiking weather. Happy Hiking

Great pic. I know you've posted what sort of camera you have' but would you mind sharing again? I've recently purchased my 1st DSLR and would live to get pictures like this.

Laura, I have a Nikon D800 that I use most of the time. Believe it or not, this photo was taken with my cell phone. Phones these days take some amazing photos.
