And a hundred yards away, these two more. When it rains, it pours!

My first balloon in six weeks.
Also, my first non-alpine hike of the season.
Might be a connection there.

Two days in a row! This one took a little excavation, as it was mostly covered in leaves.

Given the color and the date, this one is more "Merry Christmas!" than "Happy Birthday!" Found it Christmas Eve on the way back down Table Mountain, no more than a couple feet off of the PCT. Turns out you don't have to go full Chip offtrail to find these.

You know exactly what to do.
There's no need to be afraid.
Keep walking.

It's the thread that keeps on giving! :D
