I had a lovely peaceful day recently beside Rowland Lake along Highway 14 between Bingen and Lyle, Washington. The lake was stocked with fish that morning, and the ospreys and herons were eating good. Click on the first photo, and then use side arrows to see all images larger.
My friend invited me up to her birthday barbeque on High Prairie today, and I took a photo of her goose while I was there. Then, on the way back down the hill home, I caught these sunset images from Sunday night, last day of May 2015. These are processed minimally, I wanted to just share as soon as possible.
Today sis Nora and I took ourselves out to dinner at Shary’s restaurant in Hood River after her appointment across the street getting shots to help her poor arthritic knees. She loved the food, and just doing something different and rare for her. When we came out of the restaurant in a rainstorm, this view greeted us and we forgot all about rain in the face.
The most important things in life really are free, and seeing my sis having fun was a big one.
May Day dawned with the decision to head to the hills again for the first time in far too long.
I finally achieved escape velocity after various errands. A short stop in Trout Lake, a side trip to the Ice caves (with no ice left!!) and then on my way up the 23 road. Thanks to my niece Kate I was able to stay overnight, which is rare these days. I spent most of the time at Takhlakh Lake relaxing. No snow left, and already several campers. Camping is free until the end of May, so it is a great time to be there. No Mosquitoes yet either, thank heavens. here are a few quick saves while I download a lot of photos… Most of these will get more attention later on, these are mostly all unprocessed, which means dust bunnies are rampant since I need to clean my camera badly! Thanks for coming by!
