  1. Lovely images. It looks a very tranquil place – and rather cold.

    Beautiful images, Allison. I esp. love the header and the field of frosted teasel. Calendar worthy!

    I’m so proud of myself. I recognized the teasel before I found it identified! The reflection of the contrail is unusual, and nice, but that third, expansive view is gorgeous. What a fine place to have access to!

    Wonderful views, rather cold though!
