The lighting on the second photo, of dawn breaking over the high country, is lovely. The waterfall shots, as always, are lovely. And that was a fascinating bit of trivia abour bearberries. I had no idea!

Hans - Thanks for your kind words! Spruce Flats Falls is indeed a lovely and moody spot.

Rodney - Thanks so much! I am blessed to live near many very photogenic falls. And we have had lots of rain the past few days, so am hoping to check out some more this weekend!

SSG - Thanks for your helpful input - glad you enjoyed these!

MtnMan - Early mornings in the Mts are always a great time to wander!! So glad you enjoyed the view! And nature sure is full of amazing little stories...

Ronnie - glad you enjoyed the tiny berries. They are also called Partridge Berry. They are edible, but rather tasteless. If you'd like, I can post some photos of the paired flowers - taken last spring.

BluSky - So glad you liked these - have you seen that view of Walker Valley? (it's on the Falls trail). As far as I know, Bearberry/Partridgeberry is the only fruit with a double blossom-end... There may be others in other parts of the world, but the only one here.
