A goat - splendid creature - surveys the view below. Fog and clouds have become one. A red-suited couple - almost giddily, one could imagine - exploring the forest of green, still wet with raindrops. An insect daintily perched on the leaf of a doppelgänger for a pitcher plant. In the background, the fog sweeps in. Delicate, latticed wings against the powder blue petals. A heart-shaped surprise nestled amongst the moist blades of grass. A honeybee sitting squatly in a flower, completely absorbed by its task. This edible fern is locally known as "lungdu". I espied gaily-attired local women gathering them into worn out rucksacks, hurrying home before the sun sets. A lone ranger on the velvety moss. A sprig, a burst of emerald - no larger than one's fingernail - sprouts in the trunk of a fallen tree. Enroute to Triund at 2875 meters, an ethereal pair of toadstools seemingly float near the base of a rotting log. A slug amongst ferns, an iridescent hue, such as the colours are after the rain.
