I found some fireweed today. Reminded me of Alaska. When the blossoms hit the top, it means summer is over. It must mean the same thing here. Oh, I'm so glad it's less than half way up the stem.
We finally got out and enjoyed the beautiful trails here. It's a runners + bikers + walkers + jogger's paradise.
The trails are wonderful.
Absolutely B E A U T I F U L! I took a bunch of pictures- I'll post more tomorrow.
