Wednesday Hike Photos
A pleasant Wednesday with bright sunshine and deep shade took four fortunates up a remote road for a couple of miles. The ladies led out with vigor and caught up on their current events reports, with no huffing, puffing or stopping. On the return, scenery and trees and special colorful sunshine effects got our attention and several attempts to record the multi-colored "rings around the noon-day sun."
(This area produced the Christmas trees for the Chapel of the South Fork—to be put up on Saturday morning.) The diversity of various tree species side by side got our attention on the hike.
Nice, wide path
Clear sunshine lit up the aspens
Nice views of distant westerly peaks
Same peaks with a better frame, said Marilyn
Sun and clouds played rainbow-type tricks; we had to stop down the exposure, as in the next two photos.
Sometimes we could see three sun circles
Then along came a transportation vehicle high in the sky. We wondered whether the passengers could see the colors.
We wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving. There is a special community Thanksgiving service at Emmanuel Chapel at 7 p.m. tonight.
We'll start hiking again on Monday at 10 a.m. Could be snowshoes or hiking boots.
