Spent Saturday morning with a friend hiking around the north edge of the Cave Hills in South Dakota. I was seeking photographs of the flower the people around here call crocus (pasque flower) for future mugs or whatnot, as well as a little respite from my busy little life.
Lest you think from the photos I post on this blog that the entire region is flat, treeless prairie, I submit these photos. Was a great morning for a hike…
Beautiful vista. Gorgeous sky.
Why do trees grow on rocks, yet not in my backyard?
Aren’t these rocks amazing? I wish I could replicate these colors and texture in a glaze.
And then the
crocus Pasque flowers appeared -covering the hillsides. Like so much of North/South Dakota, the beauty is there. You’re going to have to take some time to see it, however.
