During the holidays following the winter solstice, I enjoy looking back at photos from the previous summer. Their images bring back wonderful warm memories of my many hikes and outings. The colorful wildflowers, inquisitive critters, mountain vistas and showy butterflies always bring a smile to my face. Here are a handful for your enjoyment.
May you and yours have a wonderful Holiday season and the best of New Years.
