seasons turning at Ginty Creek

The leaves are still green, but it freezes most nights and there is a definite feeling of fall in the air.

About ten days ago I made a trip to the top of The Hill where, much later last year, there was a wonderful display of mountain flowers in the 2-year-old burn.  This year, despite the earlier visit, most were dried up and frosted and gone to seed.

The fireweed was making a good show, though.

Back home, the aspen leaf miners had been busy.  I never really noticed it before, but when they start on the leaf they go from side to side; once they reach the second half, they go up and down.

Mallards have been congregating on the ponds.

We’ve had rain on a couple of occasions, and it has been cold enough to fall as snow on some of the mountains.

The full moon on the last day of August battled with clouds as it set over Noghwhon.

  1. Hi Chris, have you tried searching Youtube videos for all that info? Usually I find great info on almost anything. Especially bushcraft and wilderness living. There you go, you can have your own Youtube channel named ‘Wilderness Living’.
    I’ve been hoping you would have one some day, but for now I’m super happy about your blog ! Your pictures would make a wonderful coffee table book. You can call it,
    ‘Through Wilderness Dwellers Eyes’.
    Ok I’m crazy but one day maybe you’ll have a Youtube channel and talk to us about your daily life..please please ? Ok enough of this begging.
    Love you Chris ! 🙂
