One More Sunset

I was sitting in my office tonight typing away on my computer when I looked out my window and saw this happening. I knew it was something special so I ran outside to enjoy the show. I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. ~…

Mt Baker Wilderness Under Smoky Skies

Despite the smoky skies over Washington this week, we managed to find beauty in the Mt Baker Wilderness Area, which shares its eastern border with North Cascades National Park. We took the Mt. Baker Highway to its end at Artist Point for views of…

Optimism in July’s Garden

By this time of year my garden seems worn and spent and I sometimes feel it myself. It’s hot and it’s hot and there’s no rain in sight. The lettuce long since pulled, left an empty spot behind.  The potato harvest is over and…

Favorite Place: Lake Crescent

Stopping for a Sunset

It was late in the afternoon and I had to run to the store for some last minute items.  When I returned to my car it seemed that storm clouds were gathering and the sky had become a strange mix of color. I was a block away when…

Before the Sun Sets

It is late afternoon and I am looking out my window as billowy white and pale gray clouds are drifting across soft blue sky. The sun will set soon but I don’t wait. This is our version of a sunset.  The ordinary beauty of…
