On my way back from the woods Wednesday evening, i witnessed this wonderful sunset over Mount Adams, from Glenwood, WA.
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!
“What a joy it is
to feel the soft, springy
earth under my feet once more,
to follow grassy roads
to ferny brooks
where I can bathe my fingers
in a cataract of rippling
~ Helen Keller
Don’t be deceived by those lovely red bushes… Those are spring time poison oak. They certainly do make some lovely color this time of year! However it’s very difficult to walk around in the scrub oak savanna without rubbing against it.
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.
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!
An evening progression of Standing Wave Clouds near Mount Adams Monday 3/26, starting in Trout Lake, Washington and driving to Glenwood further east and north.
Looking north in Trout Lake:
Looking south and east
And south and west:
Again looking north, halfway between Trout Lake and Glenwood:
And looking at the same clouds from Glenwood side, with a barely visible Mt. Adams:
Panorama directly North:
Panorama looking West from near the rodeo grounds:
And again a bit later
Looking South near sunset in Glenwood:
Including an iPhone video just for fun:
Last gasp from east side of Glenwood, looking North and West, including Mount Adams:
And a link to my Lennies album on my SmugMug site:
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.
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.
I lost my marbles!! And then my sister friend Janice came to visit and helped me find them, and we found hers too🤪😂😂
Are yours here too? 🤗
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!
First time in awhile, i actually got up early before sunrise and ran out with my camera! Felt so good, too. ❤️😀❤️Although i sm sure my fingers wete on the edge of frostbite again. 🤪⛄️. Watched the moon setting, and the glorious new day shine on sparkly snow. Light shining into the darkest crevices of the soul cleaning out some winter cobwebs. Life is good!!
Here are a few phone pics for now. I am crossing my fingers that the camera card that suddenly told me i needed to format it will still be able to be downloaded. That moon over Trout Creek was soooo pretty.
Enjoy! Hope your day is full of happy moments of beauty and kindness.
