thistles and a view

I can find all sorts of excuses, like fog, for going up onto the nearby ridge of Mount Tamalpais. This same excuse, reworked just slightly, also works as an excuse for going up on the ridge when there is NO fog.

But of course, one of the best excuses for making the trip is the sunset.

If I need an excuse to appear productive, I always use the excuse of going up onto the ridge to count thistles.

Occasionally I will give out awards for the prettiest thistles. And as you can imagine, the competition is fierce.

Love your excuses Don. That's like my excuses to eat out.
Any reason is the best answer.
Love each shot but I really like that last one focusing on the spidery thistles.

Hi Don,
Nice sky and (cotton?) flowers, the weather is almost like a mood of a human person.
