August 2012 - Green Mountain Trail
Lance and I escape to the cooler mountains.
We're going on the Green Mountain trail.
Looks like an alright trail to me.
Looking into the San Pedro river valley.
Some forest left...
...but a lot of the forest was burned in a fire about 8 years ago.
It seems to be making a return. Lots of green with this year's generous monsoon rains.
Even the hills below have a greenish tint to them.
More of the trail.
That's as close as I dared get to this very bright mushroom.
The backside of Mt. Bigelow is behind me.
Signs of the fire remain.
Yours truly with the San Pedro river valley in the background.
San Pedro river valley.
Color. It's not fall yet, so dead trees, I presume.
Lance might be getting a little old for this...he was breathing and panting way harder than he used to.

A good spot to eat my lunch picnic and enjoy the view.
