Sunset in Glenwood

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

Spring Storms

After spending some lovely time trying and failing to catch some lightning in Southern Washington Cascades May 6, i finally gave up on that and just enjoyed where I was standing. Hope you enjoy it with me!

Catherine Creek Earth Day

My journey continue today after the previous post with a walk at Catherine Creek. It was truly so pleasant, and I took the opportunity to play in the grass quite frequently :-). I felt such a peaceful simple joy laying in the grass, in the sunshine.

Enjoy!

Happy Earth Day!

Here is a series of images taken on 4/20/18, from Trout Lake to White Salmon, WA. These are phone shots. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you find yourself grateful today for this wonderful planet we all share. Thank you for your visits, feel free to share my posts!

Last of the Light

Bingen Point and Marina last week at the end of the day, peaceful, refreshing, with a semi-common type of Standing Wave Cloud bridge across the Columbia River just East of Bingen, Washington. We get these several times a year, sometimes rough edged like this, and sometimes smooth clean edged formations. There can be a few of them on occasion, with space between. Each row, or bridge, forms like the froth or smooth roll of water at the top of each wave, as tho the winds are like the waves of the ocean.

A Happy Life

No matter what you do in life, no matter what traumas or Joys happen around you, you can always look around you in this beautiful world and find good things to warm your heart. Feeling very peaceful and content today, and here are some of the reasons why.

Monday Cloud Evolution

I have many more images at Starlisa.SmugMug.com as well, and this album in particular has the best quality images for ordering large prints, although you have to contact me directly to do so.

Cloud Evolution

I’m sure you figured out by now that I’m fascinated by clouds, and how they change so quickly sometimes. These clouds in Glenwood yesterday had their own unique metamorphosis during the evening hours. I will be posting another series as well in a separate post.

Is it Spring?

While not entirely spring in Trout Lake, down the hill in Husum to White Salmon area flowers are popping. Here the upper valley we still have little spots of snow. However yesterday I woke up to the sound of birds singing loudly, birds I had not been hearing yet this year. That’s a good sign! How is spring progressing in your area?

Here are a few images from yesterday in the lower White Salmon River Valley.

I lost My Marbles

I lost my marbles!! And then my sister friend Janice came to visit and helped me find them, and we found hers tooπŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Are yours here too? πŸ€—

Before that, when we were driving up this away, I had to show Janice The truth of my bumper sticker. “I Brake for Interesting Cloud Formations”. I didn’t teach her anything new though, she’s been around me before LOL.

I was so excited to have my friend come, got to introduce her to some family and friends along the way.

This evening, my friend next door shared some delicious stew with me.

This was a very good day! And now, sitting in my comfy chair with my dear sweet Willow on my lap. I love the way he likes to hold my hand.

I hope you all have a pleasant week ahead!
