We were camped along the stream that is wiggling toward the camera in the next photo.
After we found our spot, we had days to explore before the eclipse. I was a bit disappointed by the huge impact of cattle grazing on the land around us. It made me sad to see it. However, I found that riding uphill toward the Continental Divide got me out of the cattle region.
However, I also rode into the wildfire recovery area when I got above the cattle.
In that region, there were wildflowers, unlike in the muddy stomping grounds of the cattle.
I took some unconventional photos of the flowers, using a fisheye lens. It was fun.
Their flowers were beautiful!
I kept stopping to smell them and photograph them!
Happy Flower Friday!
