    • Hello, Soma…it was right about 9:15 a.m. when I took the photo…and yes, that is quite an amazing view. 🙂

  2. Gorgeous again. I think I see some bike riders behind the bushes… the junipers that the locals call cedar trees. Is that the new Eagle Mt off in the distance, past the road?

    • Thank you, Gunta…and no, those aren’t cyclists behind the bushes, those are some of the neon-clad hunters (?) that I had mentioned to you earlier…not really hunting season, as you mentioned, but there they are…all brightly vested and not wanting to get shot. 😉 And yes, that is the new Eagle Mountain development way off in the distance…..

    • I thought so, too, Terry…that morning-mountain light.

  4. I see the mountains calling, beckoning, in your photos.

    • That’s what they’re doing, for sure, Charlie! How nice that you see it, too. 🙂

  5. Proof that when people call hills purple, they’re not hallucinating…very pretty with the soft greens of the new grass amongst the brown stalks of last years’ grass, too.

    • Nope, they’re not imagining things…those are the colors…in the wonderful morning time. I’m eager to see the place in another month or so with the long grass covering everything….

  6. The layering of colour is quite remarkable. Are those two oversize tumbleweeds in the foreground? ; )

    • I found it very striking…and no, not tumbleweed…these are actually juniper trees…sometimes called cedar…..
