Paradise Found

Steve and Coco on Jay Point, between Lake Mt. and Mosby Mt.
Early summer in the mountains is paradise, or as close to it as earth dwellers are likely to experience. 
At 8000 feet, sun illuminates the white blooms of the serviceberry along the Lake Mountain trail. 
At Bear Wallow Spring, the new green seems to glow.

Wild Iris

Wildflowers are everywhere. 
Gull Lake reflects Marsh Peak's snowfields
and looms behind the fields of flowers. 
Paradise?  Maybe not, but for those of us not ready for Prime Time Heaven, these sights come pretty close.


  1. It does indeed look like a paradise. The wildflowers are incredibly ovely, the grass so green, the sky blue and there's still some snow on the mountains in the distance.

  2. All you have shown us does look like Paradise, what would put the cap on it for me, is to know what the temperature is . . .Anywhere from 60-72 would convince me!

    Cheers and hugs, Janie!

  3. I'm not going to argue with you. I'll simply thank you for sharing paradise with us.

  4. The wildflowers are spectacular! Especially that wild lily.

  5. Wow---that truly is Paradise... Look at those gorgeous wildflowers blooming everywhere. WOW.. Gotta love it. Wish I were there with you all.


  6. Wow, what sights of the high country (high to me anyway) in early summer. Wonderful!

  11. There are several different kinds of horseback riding lessons you can take, depending on where your interests in the sport lie. There are clinics devoted to every age group and include training for competition riding, lessons for the recreational rider, ranchers, and even classes on learning how to deal with problem horses.

  13. Looking at these pictures I realize that the world is wonderful.
    Beautiful places I will never see in person but know that there are
