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.

Journey into Paradise

May Day dawned with the decision to head to the hills again for the first time in far too long.
