Foothills Hike

Pinyon Pine, Foothills of Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

Bordering the Great Sand Dunes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are foothills covered with Pinyon pine and Rocky Mountain juniper. Becky and I hiked a trail here one morning doing one of our favorite outdoor activities... birdwatching.

 A twitter here, a twitter there, a little brown bird flitting in the brush... well, the morning was tranquil and beautiful, but the birds were elusive.

Still it was great to be outdoors.


  1. A fine shot with that wonderful backlit quality that seems to enhance every backlit picture. Well done.

  2. I love how your image picked up the rubble in the soil.
