Have they been turned into mazes that trap visitors?

Another one from my drive last week. When I was processing this one I think I was channeling Ansel Adams, but without his artistic vision.

Hmmm, to me that looks pretty darn close to the vision of Ansel Adams.

Just look at that sky!! Beautiful work Rick.

Another gorgeous photo, Rick! The black and white makes it even more spectacular.

After coming back from my week-long road trip, DH was thrilled to tell me that one of our milkweed plants was full of caterpillars. Alas, they weren't monarch caterpillars. These fuzzy yarn remnant look-alikes can totally decimate a milkweed plant.

Could it be a Viceroy? They look just like a Monarch, but are slightly different in size.

Some photos from our camping trip last week. We did a drive on the upper Poudre and over Cameron Pass to Walden, then back and up Long Draw Road to look for moose. We found them, some 25 to 30 along the 14 miles of the road. It was rainy and gloomy, so they aren't the best photos, but it was quite a drive.

The largest bull we saw:


A slightly smaller bull:


This doe was posing for us as she munched her dinner:


Not all of what we found was of the larger size:
