Fog on Mount Si

There it was. Mount Si was just sitting there by the side of the road. But instead of just being there by the side of the road like it usually is, the mountain was in holiday flair with a garland of low-flying clouds surrounding it’s girth. I guess you have to be there to get […]

I was just returning from a trip to Eugene one day when it was time for a stop. On a nice spring day at the Oak Grove Rest Area along I-5 North of Eugene, I took a short walk to look around. Sometimes if you step away from the busy part of the highway you […]

With nothing to do on a Tuesday afternoon, Seattleites tend to take the kayak out onto Portage Bay and row among the houseboats to their heart’s content.

Sailboats Parked for the Winter

A short walk along the edge of Lake Washington near Renton yields a nice view from the footbridge up ahead. The boats of the Renton Sailing Club are just waiting to be enjoyed — on another day. For now, they are just pretty to look at. Photo: Taken on the shores of Lake Washington at […]

Sunny Day at Lake Washington

It was one of those rare sunny days in late November that was also a day off when I had a chance to just take a walk along the shore of Lake Washington. The sun was out, the sailboats were floating around, just like in those pictures of tropical paradises. Only, it was pretty chilly […]

Clouds Over the Olympics

Just looking over to the Olympic Mountains from across the Salish Sea. It has been a clear morning, but the high clouds have crept in to snag themselves on the peaks of the mountains. Our eyes take the path: Puget Sound, houses on Bainbridge Island, the Kitsap Peninsula, then the mountains of Olympic National park, […]
