Enjoying the Scenery
I live in an affluent part of town. Not being particularly affluent myself, I can only afford a one bedroom apartment. But I get the benefit of the scenery.
In a semi-arid desert region of the country, prosperity is signaled by an abundance of trees. Today, as I walked to the nearby state park, I paid special attention to the trees.
My apartment complex has many nice trees. Here is the view between two of the apartment buildings.
I walked down the street toward the state park. Fashionable neighborhoods are thick with trees on either side of the street.
I entered the park. Here is what all this area looked like one hundred years ago.
I stepped off the path to snap this butterfly shot.
I stopped and rested beside the reservoir, enjoying the shade and the watching the antics of kayakers and paddle boarders.
