No plays on Monday. My mom was pretty bagged from the long day on Sunday, so we left her in the cottage and drove east of town a few miles to a little hike we like here called the Grizzly Peak Trail.

It was a Butterfly Barrio up there, they were all over the place. Here are two pair at different stages in their - um - courtship:
As the sign mentioned, there was a fire up there in 2002, and it makes for some eerie landscape to hike through:
I was startled to look down at the trail and see a bare footprint - some lady Sasquatch? A forest nymph clothed in something diaphanous woven from fern? They continued for a long way down the trail. We never saw who they belonged to.
Back in town, we took a short walk after dinner with my mom, and happened on this little performance in the town’s band shell. It’s pretty hilarious. (Youtube video - click the cartoon icon):
Off for another hike, then Gem of the Ocean tonight.
