Morning Hike

I was going to go for a hike early yesterday morning but it was just too damn sunny. I know most people like that sorta thing--but strong sunshine tends to give me headaches and that combined with the temps being around 16-20f made a migraine a sure thing. No thanks!

Today, on the other hand, had temps hovering just below freezing and nary a sign of the sun anywhere to be found. Perfect! The picture below illustrates the austere beauty of the gray skies as well as the quarry I was hiking around.


The picture below is of some greenery growing on a log. I'm not sure if it's a rather advanced lichen, a small scale moss or something else entirely. My knowledge of botany is quite rudimentary, I'm afraid. I did think it was pretty though.

I think that is moss of some sort. Sunshine gives you headaches? What are you, a weirdo?
