Hike to Magnificent Second Beach

I don’t use the word ‘magnificent’ lightly. Bob had heard of Second Beach for many years but whenever we were in the area the parking lot was already full so we’d pass on by to the next beach. And let me say you don’t… Continue Reading “Hike to Magnificent Second Beach”

Under the Trees in my Garden

For this week’s Sunday Stills challenge I thought I’d take you on a tour of my backyard garden much of which lies under the shade of giant Douglas Fir trees. When we moved to our house a few years ago the backyard was rather… Continue Reading “Under the Trees in my Garden”

Trees at the Golden Hour

“Listen to the trees talking in their sleep,’ she whispered, as he lifted her to the ground. ‘What nice dreams they must have!” _ L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables I don’t doubt that trees dream at night, but I like to catch them… Continue Reading “Trees at the Golden Hour”

A Magical Walk in the Woods

My Happy Place is in the Woods – All Kinds of Woods

I’ve always loved the woods – all kinds of woods – from the dense forests of the national parks – to smaller local woods where tiny bursts of light and color compete with green. The woods have been my happy place, a refuge from… Continue Reading “My Happy Place is in the Woods – All Kinds of Woods”

Ohanapecosh! A Day Trip to Mt. Rainier

I’m lucky to have Mt. Rainier National Park in my backyard – close enough to make a day trip whenever the mood strikes. Yesterday it did and we headed south to Ohanapecosh. The Ohanapecosh River is perhaps the most beautiful river in the park,… Continue Reading “Ohanapecosh! A Day Trip to Mt. Rainier”
