We are back in the mountains with the second and final part of images from our "Early Spring in the Mountains" series. It was getting colder and colder as we went deeper into the woods but we didn't mind. Some little glimpses of spring could be seen, but mostly nature was still in sleep. Since our visit two weeks ago things have changed quite a bit, but for now let us examine the early stages of the new season.
This is a part of a two part photo series:
Part One: The Uncertain Path
Part Two: Deep in the Wilderness
The dogs still had the time of their life, despite the cold the was dooming. The long narrow dirt road was cutting into the mountain like a knife, offering a few sights here and there of the river flowing beside us. We had lunch before we embarked on this path which made traveling somewhat of a chore, I'm not going to lie. But we did manage to get on with our journey rather quickly.
Talk about the dogs having fun. As soon we got near a water stream, Brauni went into the river and started pulling out rocks. If that wasn't fun enough, she then started to collect the rocks she would pull out and stack them neatly on the side. She was very determined to add as much as she could to her collection.
Some lovely sights waited for me by the river bed, especially the moss covered rocks and trees. Of course the fresh river flowing beneath had it's charms as well. Nature can be very fragile and I don't like disrupting it much. I'm more interested in being a silent observer and just take it all in. Honestly I could stand here the whole day, look out and not get bored.
A final sight towards the mountains. As the day wore on it got more cloudy and cloudy. Rain would also fall later this day, so we got away before getting drenched.
I hope you have enjoyed our mountain excursion and early spring sights. I hope to show you more spring sights soon.
