Blue mountains

Seen from the highway from Zeballos, heading east on a rainy evening.

Trees on the brown mountain on the left look like they're beetle kill. In the foreground: fireweed, daisies, and red elderberry, ripe.

The road in from the main highway (#19) is gravel. 42 kilometres of potholes, washboard, and fish-tailing on loose stones. Earlier in the afternoon, everything near the road was covered with grey dust, but now, after a heavy rain, it's green again.

More about this Sunday afternoon drive tomorrow.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
