RegardlessContinue reading “Reflections on Life, Ripples of memory”

New Cup Ideas, feedback anyone?

I am debating about getting a handful of these cups while they are on sale.  Question is, would anyone actually pay $25 for a ceramic mug like this?  Seems too much to me, honestly, but I might order a few to find out. I would love feedback on this.

Random Bits of Pink

I just felt like some COLOR was appropriate, rich vibrant color to counteract the Ice and bitter wind outside. A friend treated me tonight to an amazing day at Bonneville Hot Springs Resort, and tonight coming home was the coldest it has been in awhile. So, for all of you anxious for warmer and brighterContinue reading “Random Bits of Pink”

Mirror Lake on Mount Adams

I recently was blessed to witness this amazing sunset that just did not end for the longest time, moving from orange through red into pink and purple… and a while before that I caught this more subtle one.  I love to be up here in Tract D and Bird Creek Meadows.  The season will notContinue reading “Mirror Lake on Mount Adams”

Under the Storm Cell on Mount Hood

© Darlisa Black I always did love this shot looking up at a passing storm cell from up at Timberline… such wild and wooly weather these mountains create around themselves. Normally I am seeing the Hood from far away in White Salmon, Washington, watching the clouds dance around the peak or bury her completely. ThisContinue reading “Under the Storm Cell on Mount Hood”
