Honestly this is my least favorite time of year to go hiking. It’s so dry and dusty and hot and harsh (even though it’s not particularly hot this summer so far). And there are very few flowers. But, it does have its charm. I like the photos I took more than I liked being up there today. The light is great and there are a lot of translucent leaves creating interesting compositions.
Since there were no flowers to look for, I looked up a lot more than I usually do and found a lot to see up there. Enjoy!
