Crestone, Colorado — August 8, 2015
Couple photos from the area I live in, all taken in the past two weeks:
Rain in the past 10 days has reduced the lingering snow spots to just the couple larger ones. In a downpour in the early hours of August 3rd, much of it melted away, even as the storm very temporarily brought a bit of snow to the highest peaks:

–> this beetle incorporates lichen-look-alike patterns into its camouflage! How cool is thát! ;-)
For some data on the radioactive content of the local lichen, or what appears likely to have been in the rainwater in an oddly radioactive thunderstorm in mid-June, see my wrap-up post, “Synopsis / Improved Version: ‘Mainland USA June 14 2015 Radioactive Rain & Lichen Data Revisited’.“
Trees – b
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
