    Up in the high alpine country

    Today me and my daughter who lives in Texas took a trip up to Rocky Mountain National Park. It was great to get up into the high mountain tundra and enjoy the green season with the tiny little blooming flowers up there. We took a little hike and I herd the EEP!! of a Pika and it's hard to zero in where the sound they make is coming from within all this wide open country of rocks and boulders, but my daughter spotted the little critter. It stayed put for a few shots and then disappeared out of sight. These Pika's are in a way related to the rabbit family and they're no bigger then a week old cottontail. It was a great time, as being my daughter lives in Texas now, it was rather refreshing for her to get up where the air is crisp, clear and cool enough to put a jacket on.

    Wonderful shots Tamrock. Looks like a good water year, still some snow left in August.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    "When under trial, let no one say: 'I am being tried by God.' For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone. . . . Do not be misled, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." --- James 1:13, 16, 17

    Just don't come during winter because you can't get up to the high mountains. My favorite time is in the fall, as you'll have a better chance of seeing the moose, elk and big bucks.
