In the Misty Morning...

Flickr muted the colors considerably; The original is much more dramatic with golden light on the crests of the hills and even somewhat autumnal colors.


7:56 a.m. as the sun highlights the hills a layer of mist forms over the waters of the Crystal Springs Reservoir.


After this vista, I had the lyrics of Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" in my mind as I hiked the trail for 15 miles.... The "sha la la" part is a pretty good hiking cadence. Maybe I need to get an IPod like most of the other hikers and joggers out there!


Hey where did we go, days when the rains came?

Down in the hollow, playin' a new game

Laughing and a running hey, hey! Skipping and a jumping

In the misty morning fog with our hearts a thumpin' and you ...

My brown eyed girl

You, my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing?

Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da

Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da

... la te da
