Tonight 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!
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.
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!
