Mount Adams From a different point of view

I was up in the hills west of Mount Adams Tuesday 8/21/2019 and it was cloudy but the mountain was visible. There were interesting textures to the clouds so I stuck around at a fewpoint until sunset. For some foolish reason I didn’t have my camera with me, but I did get a few Photos with my phone.

that rock to the right of the peak in the foreground is the head of sleeping beauty from a different angle.

I found an interesting native legend from old days about Great Spirit and the mountains in this area.

Lenticular show

November 15, 2018 was amazing, lines of mountain wave clouds, stacks of lenticular clouds like ducklings in a row. One stack at the top of each wave of fast moving air.

I raced to my favorite spot, over looking Mount Adams, and found this scene. enjoy!

Mount Adams

Shining bright with winter snow at the higher elevations. Mount Adams is the second tallest peak in Washington State, and yet had been the lesser visited mountain. We locals like it that way.. no roads open year around to treeline.

Bird Creek Meadows 2018

Someone recently sent me a bunch of pictures to share of tract D area, Bird Creek Meadows, and Mount Adams. . The devastation around the lakes up there was pretty intense but up in the Meadows things are not so bad. The three collage pictures of burned structures are The trailers of the Yakama Tribe Rangers that were up there at the time, at Mirror Lake and Bird lake.

These were shared anonymously but I appreciate the inside look at one of my favorite areas. I haven’t been up there since the Cascade Creek fire in 2015.

Yakama Tribes are in charge of this area and it is still closed to the public because of the Cascade Creek fire damage. They have no intentions of opening it at all this year and have been working on rebuilding fences, picnic tables, out houses, fire pit, trails, roads, signs etc.

Sunset in Glenwood

On my way back from the woods Wednesday evening, i witnessed this wonderful sunset over Mount Adams, from Glenwood, WA.

Pink Morning Lennies

Mount Adams glowed with a lovely pre-sunrise pink and blue deliciousness that pulled me out of bed after only 3 hours of sleep, to stumble outside with camera in hand. By the time the sunrise kissed the mountain top, the pink had gotten brilliant. I was staying in Glenwood,  Washington, where I have a wonderful view of Mount Adams from my friends house.

These are only iPhone pics, but I really wanted to share now! The color is not quite as brilliant as my eyes were seeing.  This is an unusual event; typically the lenticular clouds more often are seen far ro the right of the mountain from this location.  Last night between 8:15 and 8:38 pm we had roaring sudden gusts of 40 mph winds, which dropped to 30 mph gusts for the next hour.  Base winds ranged roughly from 8-15 mph, fluctuating BETWEEN GUSTS from the SW to SE, and back to SSW. Temps at that time were 44 deg. F.  This morning it was below freezing and I ran out without my gloves 😂💕  Oops

May your day be blessed.
