It isn't raining or stormy today for a change, and I knew I would have to run some errands at work today, so I took along my camera just to see what I would see on my walk.
This massive old oak tree fell victim to last week's big wind storm. You don't really get a sense of the scale of the thing in this photo -- that trunk is a good 6 or 7 feet across! Can you believe something this huge could fall down and cause no damage except for a lot of debris that had to be picked up?
I never noticed this manhole cover before. I have walked that sidewalk a hundred times...
You know you live in a damp climate when even the moss grows ferns!
More moss and some lichen on a garden rock. (This is not either a macro. It's just a close up... )
Oh, how I love this gate. An artist in our area specializes in wrought iron architectural details. Isn't he amazing? I wish I could afford a piece of his work. This gate leads to...
... this balcony. Silver Creek is running *very* high these days, due to the unusually heavy rainfall we are having, as well as some heavy snow melt up in the mountains.
And back to the Library. I included this shot just because I was so happy to catch a glimpse of truly blue sky. It is almost as good as medicine to see such a sky at this time of year.
