I promised two things in a previous post. One was the incomplete sketch I did of Crater lake and West Maroon Valley (not far from Aspen) that I started before the downpour began, last weekend. It is on the left (click to enlarge.) The other is a collection of the wild flowers and other pretty things that I picked for you (non-destructively) from my little hike in the West Maroon valley. There’s Columbine, Indian Paintbrush, and so forth, along with some industrious insects in some instances. It is a slide show you can view by clicking on any of the thumbnails below, and then either wait for it to play automatically, or look to the sides (when your mouse is over a photo) for front and back arrows to move around. Enjoy!
