Revisiting old photos
This Indian Paintbrush was just one of many I saw this last summer in the Sierras. Summer was really nice. Fall is nice too, but it just doesn't have the splendor here in CA that it has in the Northeast. Here where I am, we woke to some light rain followed by clearing to sunny - can't complain too much. But the hills aren't covered with deciduous trees - or trees of any sort (not enough water) and so we go from bare brown hills to bare green hills. Beautiful, but in a different way. This time of year, I pine for the Northeast hillsides of red and orange and yellow.
