|The road to Glacier Point|
The fire was burning all the under brush between the Chinquapin turn off and Badger Pass ski resort. This we're told is a good necessary thing but try telling that to the tourists on vacation.
I knew Nancy would probably get some dramatic pics from this so the next morning after sleeping on a not so comfortable couch we went back out to see what we could catch of the fire and the flowers we didn't have time for the previous day.

This little meadow was surrounded by cedars and ponderosa pines. While focusing on some cone flowers we were rewarded with a visit from the Monarch royalty.
We kept hoping it would open it's wings but it was to busy working it's way around the cone to listen to our advice.
Fortunately it came back to another cone with more lupine in the background. It was hard to live all this behind but I had to get back home to pack for a trip to visit my mom.
Sadly the trip to mom's was not so good. The demtia of Alzheimer's is taking over and she kicked me out of her home after less than a day. It was a long bus ride home. .
Life has it's difficulties but it also has it's rewards. Fortunately the rewards still out number the bad times.
