More Redecorating

It keeps getting better.  I tried updating this last night but my internet service was running at the speed of evolution, so I waited until today.

Yesterday I was doing some drive-by litter picking, driving until I saw some litter, stopping, and picking it up, which basically means I was stopping every 50 to 100 feet for about ten miles.  What began as a beautiful sunny day soon changed as a north wind brought clouds full of moisture.

Every once in a while, the sun found a spot to sneak through the clouds and the lighting became pretty dramatic.   I love it when the sun spotlights the colorful trees.

Here at Mile 52 is when the rain drops got pretty thick and I thought I saw a few wet snow flakes.

Yes, new snow on the mountain tops.

Seems like every time I drive by these recreational cabins at Lower Summit Lake the sun manages to come out.

The rest of Lower Summit Lake.

This guy was rowing his inflatable raft and trolling for fish.

Wish the sun had been out for this photo of these leaves along Summit Lake.

And a family of swans at Tern Lake.

 Just as I was leaving the swans, the sun  highlighted these trees.


  1. The landscape of trees is being redecorated each day here as well...on a road trip from Michigan to New York for the past three days,,,it is magnificent. Ah, snow on the mountain tops in Alaska...makes me a little homesick! Did the single male swan come back this year? Hugs! Patti and Cap
