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 […]

The View From Index

Index is one of those places where I’d like to live, if only it were practical to do so. At least practical without a major lifestyle change. Anyway, I could spend a long time looking here at the view of Mount Index along the North Fork of the Skykomish River. It really is pretty there. […]

Ocean Hunter

The fishing boat seen here is called the “Ocean Hunter” which seems to be as good a euphemism as anything for fishing. Of course, once you […]

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, […]

Olympic Mountains on a Clear Day

If you are lucky and the day is reasonably clear, you can see the majesty of the Olympic Mountains from Seattle. We sometimes take that for granted. But occasionally there is the rare day where the view is really clear. We had one recently. It seems like every detail of the mountains were suddenly visible. […]

View From the Multnomah Falls Bridge

Of course, countless photos have been taken and posted all over the place showing the majestic view that is Multnomah Falls, one of the most photographed places in Oregon. This also seems to mean that people are so entranced by the falls that they never seem to notice the beauty of the rest of the […]
