I am thankful for the gifts of Nature that I've seen this week.
The flowers are starting to bloom. I love seeing them along the trail to the mountains, like I did during a long mountain bike ride a few days ago. I love sights like this so much!
As I rode that mountain trail, I saw a hawk land on top of a tree. I stopped to watch him, and he took off to fly again. He was stunning!
Then, during last evening's hike, Hachi stared pointedly into the meadow. At first, we thought it was a false alarm. Then, the Runner spotted this velvet-antlered beauty resting in the green grass.
He was breath-taking.
