Noticed one of my favorite wildflowers today... Jack In the Pulpit. They've been emerging for a few days and have become more noticeable.
But not to be out-done, there are now Mayapple blossoms and another favorite (state flower of Colorado) Columbine.
Then to cap it all off, I ran across more morel mushrooms in one outing than I've found in a long time. Good for a side dish at tonight's meal and likely some left for tomorrow.
I was quite sore waking up this morning so started with brisk hiking then after a couple miles things loosened up and was moving without any complaining from my knees. Since this was designed to be a recovery day, I took the time to look for mushrooms around half way, then hurried home with the bounty!
10 miles today and another hiking session for tonight.
