Thanks for your note, Peter!

Thanks ever so much, Gil! It really was a beauty! Y'know, I just noticed just now that someone put rocks around the bottom of it to look almost like toes!! LOL!! (all through the hike we kept seeing little stacks of rocks and designs made with rocks around plants! :D )

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)/>free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!
