Breezy Point

On top of Breezy Point, St. Joe National Forest.....Taken 6/27

Yes, the wind blows a lot up on Breezy. Years ago, my husband and I sat up here and watched as airplanes dropped retardant on a forest fire, where we had a ring-side seat. We were actually looking in the opposite direction from what this picture was taken, as you have a 360 degree view. In the foreground is beargrass, the trees are alpine fir. I call them ice cream cone trees, because they tend to look like an upsidedown ice cream cone, growing straight and tall, rather than wide. They have a short growing season, as spring comes late to the high country, and winter returns early.

    This pic makes me anxious for summer to return. Y'know I think we have the best summers anywhere because they are so short. It's nature's tradeoff with us. It's worth it.
