No Hurry...
No hurry at all

The End Of The Day
Distant showers, the last glow of the sun, and the
feeling that we really are pretty tiny...

Another Swimmer In The Twilight

 When beavers are annoyed or wish to scare off something,
they slap their large flat tails against the water.  
It works.  This one slapped and dove under.

Sunshine And Wildflowers...
What's Not to Like?
A few peanuts would be nice, though.

Lighting Up The Shadows
A tiny Trillium lights up the path.
Soon there will be more of them.

The Green Explosion!
We took our first real walk of the Spring 
at Seaquest State Park yesterday, 
and it was incredible!

Beautiful Columbia River Day
What a moment!  The barge, Mt. St. Helens in the background,
 and an occupied eagles nest.  If you click on the picture you'll be able to make out the two Bald Eagles in the nest.  I didn't see the eagles until I was posting this.

Old, But Still Standing 
One of the few buildings still standing in the 
Shaker Indian fishing village near The Dalles Dam.

Late Afternoon At The Dalles Dam
I am always amazed by the beauty of this spot.
In the late afternoon sun, both the Shaker Indian
fishing village and the dam that took away the Celilo Falls 
fishing sites seem to go together very well.  The glowing hills
on the Washington side are a perfect complement for the sky.
