Nature Observation

A Forest Knoll under a Ponderosa Tree. The bark of a Ponderosa smells like butterscotch when it is warming in the sunlight. It is really quite uncanny. Here you can see the blue sky breaking through the trees to the west. The afternoon sun pouring down into the forest. You can see that this place it very near the top of a mountain; the sky showing blue so close to the ground on the left. There is a view to the west stretching for over 100 miles just over this knoll.
