mountain outing

Me and Lilah and my sister went up to the Uintahs for a hike today.

It was beautiful, cooler and so fun to be together. We passed ten lakes on our way and took a few minutes to enjoy several. There were still some flowers in bloom though it’s looking a bit like fall already up there.

We spotted a frog and a salamander and tried out “the elevator”, our old nickname for a floating island of grass, moss and dirt on one of the lakes. We walked out on it and enjoyed it sinking and spraying and moving as we walked.

I also made good use of the opportunity to try out my macro lens some more. Here are a few of my favorite pictures taken with it from the day.
