I am always shocked
at how much the landscape changes
when we cross through the Pass
and visit the other side of the mountains.
That's how I always think of it:
"the other side of the mountains."
One of my goals recently
is to learn (and remember)
more of the names
of the plants and flowers
that I come across.
I was pleased to be informed
that the yellow, sunflower-like blossom
that grows all over the hillsides there
is a type of Balsamroot.
