I am beginning to realize how much I now enjoy Sunday evenings! It's a whole new ball game now, after dinner is done and clean up has taken place. I can sigh, I can relax, I can do absolutely nothing and still be fully ready for Monday. I can wake Monday mornings and decide what I would like my day to look like. The only thing I did know about today beforehand was that I wanted to be out there some where! Last minute decisions mean I will be soloing so I wanted safe surroundings. Introduce Prairie Mountain into my day, one is never alone there. Weather reports said fog and cloud out that way which would lift mid morning. I knew from experience this could mean a spectacle!
The spectacle I expected transpired!
I reached the first opening!
Voila! It appeared as I hoped it would!
higher up to where it was more opened up
Through the trees and out in the open, the view was grand.
The wind was whirling, clearing the clouds and fog quickly.
the white line follows the tea stream
The view east shows more hanging clouds.
wild life sighting for today
Back into the trees I moved with a method. It was very slippery and I wanted to arrive back at my car fully in tack. It seemed my down trip was slower than my up trip, it wasn't pretty but I got the job done. I undid the hatch of my hatchback and sat basquing in the sun and savouring the balance of my sandwich and tea. That was a delightful way to cap off a satisfying morning!
