Early Morning Hike

I love, love, love this weather! I took off this morning knowing that it was warm outside and wanting to avoid people and bugs! I was pretty successful at avoiding both. I'm pretty happy with these three photos, considering I had no tripod and was not sure what to expect on this hike. If the water is not flowing, a hike like this can be a bust.




Below, I saw these three little flowers on my way back to my Jeep. They were begging to be recognized among a sea of brown. If it were not for the energy of my students and the fact that I like my job, I would be a very bitter man knowing that I have to return to work tomorrow.
I remembered today what my first professional choice was way back when I entered high school. I considered, though briefly, being a conservationist. I had forgotten this long ago goal and am happy that I am able to take such enjoyment in nature today.

Is this Yatesville Falls? Wherever it is, it is beautiful and you did a great job without the tripod. Amazing looking water! Nature sure is a wonder. Glad you went into teaching, though!

Great job with the water! You must have a steady hand. I got some similar shots yesterday as well, I'm a little slower getting things posted though.
