The other direction

Yesterday’s view of these trees was taken looking north. Here’s a view looking south. My favorite mountains, the Olympics, peek out. You can draw back further along this road, heading north, for a longer, broader view of the mountains. But I’ll spare you the addition of the telephone poles that line the road when you do this.

I’ve been away for a few days. I hope to have a chance to visit the Lavender Faire and Festival if I get back in time. If I do, I’ll post some shots soon.

Hide and seek

You’d think a mountain range as prominent as the Olympic Mountains would stay put. But they play a convincing game of hide and seek, often hiding in the mists of our maritime climate. This makes them all the more stunning when, on a clear morning, they decide to really strut their stuff. By midday on the day I took this shot they were back behind the shroud of clouds.
