Nights here have been filled with shooting stars and aurora borealis (northern lights) I wish the movie I took of the aurora turned out so I could have shared the ribbons of light with you, but alas.........
The last couple of days have been filled with sunshine and rainbows. Really.
We were out at the Cowee Creek yesterday. I took pics and stayed near the road because I am deathly afraid of grizzlies who frequent the area. We see guys with rifles walking past us - and though we've got bear spray - which I thought would ease my mind, but not! I was scared. Anyway, I took these pics below near where the bridge crosses Cowee Creek.
This once was a Devils Club leaf measuring about 16 inches across - it's been eaten alive - the horror! 8-0
Below are very white fungi growing on the side of the tree trunk.
Not sure what kind they are yet.
