Thank you so much for your kind comments about my feelings on the anniversary of Errol's passing. When I started my blog, I had no idea one could make friends like you - all across the country and the world even. I appreciate your friendship so very much.
Thank you also to my friends who sent loving emails. And to Errol's family, so many called me and shared their love.
At the reserve, I was happy to find a bench at the top of the hill we climbed.
Then the view! No words needed here.
Jeanne took this picture on our way downhill.
As we left the reserve, we stopped to take pictures of this multi-colored hill. Fiddlenecks pose in the foreground. I hope you can see how they earned their name. Their tops curve, just like the neck of a fiddle.
This year, poppies grow everywhere. We liked how they traveled down this barren-looking -- I don't know what it is, the side of a gully, perhaps?
At the end of a lovely day with a friend, in nature so gorgeous one can't find words to describe it nor capture it with the camera. The mountains in the background with the orange poppies in front put a nice finishing touch on the day though. For me.....
