High On A Mountain Top--Near Sunset

I decided I needed to hike West Wing Mountain one more time before spring break ended, (while I still had the energy to do it) but this time just before sunset. And this time I took my camera!
I love the colors on the mountain at this time of night.

And how the sunlight illuminates the wild flowers.



There is a wonderful variety of flora, most of which is nice to look at but not to touch.

The wildflowers were all in bloom. That doesn't happen every year, just on special years when there is a lot of rain.
I love this picture!

And this one. I especially like the lighting and the view of the mountains in the distance.

I made it up and back down just before the sun set. What a beautiful way to end a vacation!

May you always find . . . joy in your journey!
