Up the ridge in suits and sandals. Distracted by all the subalpine ground beneath me: strong little patches of sage, dozens of colorful wildflowers, sunflowers, balsam root, daisies, mosses that look like the most mystical forests, like stars, mosses that bloom into little white flowers, grow tall like bright yellow trees, spiders crawling among the rocks, small grey animals squeaking upon our arrival. So much life among the rocks. Amazed by all of this.
