On The Way...


Tried to locate some pikas again last week but it just didn't happen. The mule ears however were out in full force and it ended up being a pretty nice hike, despite the lack of pikas. Blue Monday Mellow Yellow

Wow, a beautiful field of mule ears. I'm missing my Sierra wildflowers, have't been there July 4th. Can't complain, Alaska was beautiful.

Mule ears. I guess they're named for the leaves! Pretty flowers!

I am familiar with mule ears, but did not know they made a flower called that. These fields are very pretty filled with them.

Like the path there. No question as to where one should walk. If only all of life were like this!

I have never heard of Mule's Ears. I guess that is because I have only lived on the East Coast.

I would definitely love to walk that trail ... don't know how much actual walking I would do, though ... I'd have to be stopping every couple of steps to take another picture!!!
