Your writing is so beautiful and detailed that along with your photos I ache to be in the Rockies again. Thank you for sharing this bit of heaven, with all the joy and sorrow it hold.

I loved the picture of the orchid’s ❗️ What’s their name ❓


Glad to read you've gotten back into Wild Basin. It's still painful to hear about that burn scar. It just confirms what I've always known and hated -- that when places I love burn, they won't return for even my grandchildren to enjoy as I did. Knowing it's nature's way has never been much comfort.

Susan, I agree that the forests won't come back soon, if ever. As someone who loves trees, it's a hard fact to accept.

Kathy Kaiser

Sally, those are calypso orchids, and they are pretty rare and hard to find here in Colorado.

Kathy Kaiser

Thanks, Shoney. Hope you'll be back in the Rockies sometime.
