We hunted for colors in winter and found a lot more:
lichen cloaked rocks in orange, chartreuse, and gray
old rose hips tenaciously clinging to thorny branches
two aspen that have twisted around each other as if they have mated for life
an abandoned wasp nest
aspen trees that have been somebody’s lunch–Eman wonders: caterpillars? and requests that I look for caterpillar scat!
rocks to climb
Winter’s wonders are clear to see amongst the bare earth and trees.
