Bear Scat! I'm sure that's not very exciting to most of you, but I thought it was kinda cool...I don't see this on the trails in Austin!
This is part of the Apishapa River that runs back behind one of the pastures next to Lynn's house.
A field of post bloom Thistle. I bet this is really beautiful in the Spring.
Lynn and Tim bringing up the rear
Cougar fur? Maybe bear? We found it on the trail during one of our hikes.
Some wild flowers
Sisters walking back to the house after a great climb to the top of the ridge
Top of the ridge...coming through the dense brush was interesting
Tim listens intently for any signs of bear or cougar
Thick forest of new growth
Hiking a different day with my mother in law, her friend, and Caitlin
Meadow of thistle
A little perspective. The hill made for a wonderful climb
The beaver that gnawed this tree down seemed to place it in just the right place! We used this tree to get across the stream.
It's hard to tell in the photo, but this is a bear track...hind foot.

Looking into the thick quiet.
