Cloudless skies ahead for days

Me on the Chanterelle trail
Last Saturday Lily took this picture, unbeknownst to me, and I have to say I really love it. The trail looks just like this in many spots; in others it's more hilly, but it's truly a beautiful place to walk, as you can see. I was still recovering on Saturday from having overdone it on Thursday. Today, however, I'm completely recovered other than a bit of an achy left knee. I'll head to the pot shop later on to get some CBD for pain. I know it will be useful, and I wish everyone had the opportunity to take advantage of its effects. It doesn't make you high but it sure does erase all my aches and pains. You can read all about it here.
Tiny little thing
I captured this lovely little butterfly (or moth, I'm not sure which) on Thursday. And no, I don't know what the plant is that is landed on, but the picture turned out well because I didn't have any direct sunlight. That won't be the case for the next week or so around here, since we are in a heat advisory (along with most of the country) and there won't be any clouds to help keep us cool. I heard today that Seattle is the largest city in the US without ubiquitous A/C. It's no different a bit north where we are. It's comfortable now; it's only later, around 4:00 or so, that it begins to really heat up. I'll be staying in the shade. Don't forget to drink water (reminder to myself).

  3. I'm interested in CBD for arthritis pain. In what form do you use it?

  7. Butterflies never seem to sit still long enough so that I can get a photo. This hot weather is not my thing.

  13. Love the shot of you determinedly tackling the grade. Lovely spot. Me too wishing we all had access to CBD. We approved medical use a year ago but the first dispensary has yet to open.

  14. Interesting what you wrote about CBD. It seems to be taking too long for the benefits to be officially recognised.

  15. It's just a matter of time before CBD is available everywhere.

  16. Yes, lots of water. Hope your knee feels better shortly. Such a beautiful place you live for hiking. And, now, I need to go do my knee exercises. Ha!
