This is my life book- a place to collect a list in pictures of the different forms of life I have seen. I have tried to include the date/time/location of each subject. This list might be heavy on the birds because they are my current interest, but there will be other things featured as well. Some of the pictures are great, and some not so great- I never know when I'll come across something interesting and sometimes all I have is my camera phone on hand to capture an image.
I saw these American pipits at Summit Lake (12,863 ft) while traveling to the summit of Mount Evans. Summit lake is a tarn, which is a lake formed in a cirque that was carved out by a glacier. You can read more about Summit Lake here. American pipits are one of a few birds that are located above the tree line in Colorado. You can read more about these pipits here, and you can read more about the tundra here.
