Okay, enough complaining. It's really been beautiful lately.
I was wandering around in my mind trying to think of some nice picture to post. I can't think of anything that is "fallish" to represent the present season, but I though I would share a few picture from an adventure that I took with my young neighbor.
Last summer on an extremely hot day, he and I (he has adopted me as his grandma) took off for a short hike down the nearby railroad track. It was fun to discover an old, low trestle. I took quite a few pictures and some of them turned out pretty good. I'll share them now as an end of summer tribute.

The trestle was a cool, shady, mysterious place with a sandy floor underneath and dripping water. There was a lot of green and mats of tiny flowers. Brown cypress knees poked up, and tiny fish swam in the stream of water. A garden spider sat in the middle of a perfect orb. The dark creosoted wood made a nice contrast with the green ferns and cool water. It was a pleasant oasis on a hot summer afternoon.
