Distance from this vantage point to the mountain peak is 57.5 miles.

Evening by the Lakefront

Pair o' Ducks

Pair o' Docks




Keeping an eye on the kids.

Fishing after work.

Enjoying the evening together.

Sunset ends the day.


Far fewer guesses were posted than I had hoped, but I won't keep you in suspense further.

The mystery fruit in the previous post is a Salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis) of the family Rosaceae [Wikipedia].

Thanks again to Jodie for help in identifying this plant.

This garden weed has a strong pungent odor. One of its common names is Stinky Bob. A substance in the tiny hairs is highly irritating to the skin.

Thanks to Jodie for her help in identifying this flower.
