Kay and I traveled to Mt. Magazine Saturday for a long hike. It was in the mid-60s with partly sunny skies. However, at the top of the mountain it was 44°, overcast, with moderate winds. Thus, no hiking or photography: we went to the restaurant for lunch instead. While this Columbine was photographed at the Visitors Center, the unknown flower did pose for photos on the way down the mountain.
After our hiking attempt at Mt. Magazine was thwarted by dense fog, cold temps, wind, etc., Kay and I drove east to Ouachita National Forest to hike the 4+ mile Lake Sylvia trail. It was windy and significantly overcast. The trail was in need of maintenance, but provided a good hiking experience
Your images are so lovely!
