🙂 Wow! That is really red!
Yes, it’s a beautiful color. They put this “cinder” rock on the roads in winter so you see it everywhere.
beautiful rich colours.
Yes, they are. Lots of interesting contrasts. 🙂
I really like the contrasting colors and the mountains in the distance with all the trees inbetween.
Thanks! Some of those hills are cinder cones. There are hundreds in that area.
