Mammaries 29 – 31 July 2012 Part Four

 

The following morning I had a bonus.  Although the weather was still stormy, the camp was flooded with sunshine.  Every lake that I could see, however, had its own down comforter of fog.

Just west of the camp was a small rocky knoll.

The view from there was wonderful.

I went up to watch the sunrise from first light (This is Mt Monarch)

to full light

The temperature was very close to freezing – the dew was stiff!  So both I and the dogs were pleased when the sun hit the top of the rocky knoll.

It picked out the saxifrage and stonecrop growing among the stones.

I dropped down to a meadow just above the camp.

The vegetation was thick with the stiff, not quite frozen dew.

It was a fitting end to my wonderful camping trip.  Thank you Doron, Badger and Harry for making it easy for me.

  1. Beautiful pictures! Watching them made me feel like actually being ‘there’. I hope that I will be able to see all this beauty with my own eyes, some time. Thank you for these particular four posts. From now on, they will be my favorites 🙂

    I hope your knees will not cause you too much trouble.
