I’m standing on a hilltop in Yellowstone on a cold and bright December morning. The snow beneath me is covered with hundreds of wolf tracks. They must have been through here early this morning – the tracks are clearly fresh, and there are no other people tracks around.
All wolf tracks.
I look over my shoulder. It’s eerie. Where are they now? I’m not generally afraid of wolves, but when you see how big their tracks are…well, it’s eye-opening.
I notice a line of little coyote tracks in the midst of all of these giants. How brave of him to be anywhere near this place!
The silence is broken by howling to the east of me, with answering howls from the hills across the river. Not far! I head back to the trailhead where Bill is waiting. The Wolf Project team has arrived.
Weekly Photo Challenge asked “what yellow means to me”…Playfulness! I saw the challenge on my phone while I was out. At the grocery store I came upon the bright yellow rubber ducks, they spoke more interesting than the yellow lines on the street…I was happy to find a few more playful images keep our feathered friends company.
Who knows the words to the Rubber Ducky Song from Sesame Street ? Or is that just American?
Come see! Come see! We were commanded.
Following, we came into an inner room,
Once there we gazed in wonder. She was the only one to draw near when the wings unfurled.
I could tell you who these beings are and how this meeting came to be but, of course, I won’t. What I will tell you is that I have been searching YouTube for videos of the Messiah and Googling “Lo An Angel Appeared” (images).
What do you imagine is happening?
All three are the same image, I was attempting a dream sequence. does it work?

Who remembers Main Street being decorated for Christmas after Thanksgiving. We had a pet parade followed by the lighting of the a big tree in the middle of the street. I don’t know if that still happens anywhere anymore. These are the lights that decorate the street trees in a Berkeley shopping neighborhood. I was in everyone’s way taking pictures of them yesterday. I wondered if I was the only one awed by the sparkle and beauty.
Let me know if you go all gaga for Christmas lights, too.
Moved a flower-pot on the deck after a rain and found these beauties growing in a crack. The husbands worried about rot while am documenting their growth. I’ll get out the mushroom book later today to find a name for them, for now I’ll guess umbrella mushrooms.
