First Spring Flowers!


Pleasant 3 3/4-mile loop hike from home.

Spring flowers in bloom, yet it’s only mid-February.

A little warm sunshine.

Crows on Council Crest enjoying an earthworm or two.

Life continues to be good.

  1. Spectacular photos, John, as always. The crocus photos are palpable with brightness, color, and texture. And the mountain photos are exquisite, so majestic in their blanketed snow. One of my favorite flights is flying north from San Francisco to the NW, to see all of these beautiful mountains; but I sometimes get a little mixed up identifying each mountain. So to have them framed and focused and labelled here is a real treat.
