this small plant ~ solanum dulcamara (bittersweet nightshade) catches my eye on my morning walk at Bald Hill. the last bits of it growing along the water with the brightest of berries. it became my "15 minutes to rest the mind" exercise yesterday.

a quote to share from Henry D. Thoreau
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. . . . In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness."

alpine lake along the Canyon Creek Meadow trail
I am usually on the look out for interesting pieces of nature that speak to me ~ "eyes" of trees are my favorite
my love taking in the beauty of Three Fingered Jack, part of the chain of mountains in the Oregon Cascades
this boulder was much taller than me ~ another incredible nature study
