Eventually those inflated seed pods dry out, turn gold, and blow away, breaking apart to release the plant’s seeds in a new location.

Some photos I took in the last few days, most of which I spent hiding from crowds near Mammoth Lakes.

That’s an old Jeffrey Pine and the last light on Bloody Mountain from when I was walking Rory last evening, and Rory himself having fun in Macleod Lake earlier that day. Then there’s an old, lightning-scarred lodgepole pine from the Heart Lake trail today. I really liked that tree.

The rest are flowers along the trail today: mariposa lily, larkspur, manzanita, scarlet gilia, Indian paintbrush, Western blue flax, and a not-quite-focused shot of some cute little blue jobs I have no idea about; maybe some kind of phlox?

The trail was almost empty because everyone was at the parade in town. Way to go, fellow humans.
