this vacation trip journal has unexpectedly stretched into several days and has now become the vacation treatise. I will spare you 'much words' tonight and share some remaining highlights with some captions and photos.
the trail was full with wildflowers aplenty and since i was ambitiously practicing with my camera i took loads of photos.
even though this photo is not spectacular, i was so thrilled with being able to capture a snap of this rapidly flitting, teeny (maybe 1/4 inch) blue butterfly i am posting it anyway. don't know its identity so anyone out there that knows... would love some assistance. i often had to catch up with hubby as i strayed behind snapping the many butterflies we saw.
we visited several waterfalls. this one is called dry falls. interesting. why would any waterfall be called dry? although as a matter of fact, we were told that all the falls currently were lacking some magnificence due to the shortage of rain this season. in my view all waterfalls are magnificent and most powerful.
