Look Up? Look Down!

    We went camping over the 4th of July weekend and did a lot of hiking in our unusually lovely weather.  The first day, my view was like this:IMG_3795

And this:

 Yeah, bummer.  This is how I felt:

There’s a fungus among us – more than one!  Aren’t they beautiful?

    What amazing pictures! I love that there is beauty everywhere. We need only take the time to find it.

    Thanks for sharing and I hope you’re doing better now.

    Thanks, Patricia. I rather resented staring at the ground until I started to see unexpected things. And yes, injury has “un-flared” and I’m concentrating on my PT exercises again.
