I was going to hold off on more forest photos for a few days but my shoot after work tonight didn’t pan out for a couple reasons: I couldn’t remember where the thing I wanted to photograph was and I had to take a sick kitty to the vet. Jessi, one of the outdoor cats, has a foreign body in her esophagus and they have to scope and remove it Wednesday. Poor little cat, wish her luck.
So, it’s back to the forest today. From reading Montucky’s blog, I think I can actually identify something we saw. I believe this is a Yellow Salsify, also known as Western Goat’s Beard.
And from the top…not a big dandelion, after all. Right, Montucky?
And from down below…
This area of the forest in today’s and Sunday’s posts is not as dense or tall as a lot of the forest around Flagstaff. We don’t know if it has been logged or what the reason might be. The altitude is approximately 6,600 feet while it’s almost 7,000 feet in Flagstaff. It was cold enough to wear a jacket on Saturday night and, with temperatures expected to be 116 this weekend, that will be a very fond memory.
