Hiking a short trail in Boulder's hills with Donna, Roy and Lee there were lots of photo ops for the photographers on the journey. It was a Canon crowd. Roy and Lee were using dSLRs while my choice for this hike was much more compact and could easily slip in my pocket -- the Canon SX230 HS.
The hike was along a very small stream (two feet wide) along a steep sided valley with many species of flora -- no fauna. At least we didn't see any.
Steep sided valley with lots of shade and moisture from the stream was a good environment for moss and fungus and lichen. A career in Information Technology gave me no background to do a proper identification -- of a colorful collection of something.
