Swimmers had left the popular Pack River swimming hole on Colburn-Culver Road by the time the dogs and I happened by.
It was a bit odd to see the place empty at 6:15 p.m., but it could be that several days of hot weather ahead means plenty more opportunities to take a dip.
This spot is a very pretty sight, with or without its summer busYness.
Alpacas and hay bales extend for about half a mile along Rapid Lightning Creek Road.
|We have a "wolf crossing" warning sign at the beginning of our Lovestead driveway. Apparently, the wolves OR their spirits stay on the trail at this place up in Gold Creek.|
|I'm thinking this must be my friend Janice's horse, which was happily grazing near an older home east of Western Pleasure Guest Ranch. Pretty spots.|
|Just pretty flowers at Upper Gold Creek|

|It's spirea time. Pink blossoms are adding some color to the summer dry scene.|
|Terra and Lefty, learning the fine points of showmanship. They have about ten days of practice before the 4-H horse show, and they're coming along nicely.|
I went to town yesterday to pick up some more sunflower seeds in hopes the finches would keep showing up at the feeder. So beautiful this time of year.
|Morning glories on a glorious morning.|
|Oregano blossoms are starting to pop out. I love planting oregano around the place because the blossoms add some color in late summer, and they last for a long time.|
|Neighbors out for an early morning walk down South Center Valley Road. |
We've had some very lovely summer days for enjoying the abundance of seasonal beauty.
