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.

Thus Dreams the Heart

Sweetly dreams the wayward child,

As Love surrounds their sleeping form.

Journey on through night so mild,

Unfolds a world so soft and warm.

Dancing clouds delight the eye,

Swimming high above the Bay.

The child laughs and wonders why,

Then joins in flight and joyous play!

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!

Beauty of Sunset

But in return they can be the source of great enlightenment. ”

Sunset

❤️ This image from November 2 Is fascinating to me. It’s such a mishmash! I took this at a local Schreiners wild animal farm near Lyle, Washington, with my phone.

I was on my way to The Dalles for a slideshow about a new book “Ever Wild” by Darryl Lloyd, with stories, photos, history in geology etc. about Mount Adams. I got distracted by a sunset.

On the way into the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, I had to stop for one more picture.

By the way, here is the cover of the beautiful new book, and if you click on it it will open the website about the book.

Falling Leaves

Such a lovely day on the crick out back, Standing there in delight while when gusts of wind grabbed the trees and shook them, sending Cascades of Cottonwood leaves falling all around me.

Leaves landed in the creek and drifted by, yellow hearts against the reflections in the slowly moving stream.

The sun would playfully hide behind the stormy clouds and Peek out at unexpected moments, and all of a sudden everything was brilliant yellow and red and green and blue.

Autumn 🍂 is Here

Amazing old fashioned grapes 🍇 at my brothers place, on their way to become canned grape juice. They smelled heavenly!

Columbia River Gorge is finally getting good fall colors. I have really been noticing beautiful yellow Oak trees this year!
