As the Brilliant Reds Faded from the Sky…

…A warm happy light painted the landscape and sky, more gentle yet just as profound as the fiery colors a short time earlier. I was on a drive-about, the first one on my own in over a week, and this time of year I wish I could be out there on the road in random directions almost daily!
My journey today took me up Highway 14 to the Maryhill loops road, but I got there too late to drive the old Loops road during the two hours it was open this year. I wandered down by Stonehenge Memorial, then up the hill to Goldendale where I stopped by the Observatory and visited awhile. Taking random back roads I discovered an old meeting house of some sort, took portraits of some lovely cows in golden light, captured a small Lennie and a sundog over Mount Hood, and caught this amazing sunset and alpenglow as I started down the windy Glenwood road to where it crosses the Klickitat River. Heading on up the other side, I stopped briefly at the Glenwood store long after dark. Stopping again at the Rodeo grounds, and out came the camera one more time to shoot a dance event at the community building there and the stars and Lenny over Mount Adams behind the building. Tired and happy, I continued the drive on into Trout Lake to say goodnight to Roger and Connie before picking up some fresh raw cows milk from the Land of Milk and Honey Dairy Farm and heading on down Highway 141 to home in White Salmon. This was a good day, much needed time chasing light and enjoying the evening air.
