One of several small ferns I saw near the Crest yesterday. The Forest Service is closing the mountains on Friday because of the fire danger. Even though I’m 100% in favor of that — it’s been an extremely warm and dry year — I’m really sad I’ll miss a few weeks up there. (Hopefully only a few weeks, anyway.) Despite the general dryness of the Sandias this year, it’s been fairly moist near the Crest, as these ferns attest.
