Once there was a ranch house here...

...and what an amazing view they had!

Another mountain...

We often have pictures of Mt. St. Helens, but here's another mountain from the Cascade Range-- Oregon's Mt. Hood, viewed from the east side.

Reflections in his eye...

All of the snakes in Western Washington are small and harmless-- and quite shy.  I wonder if he envies chipmunks.  Everybody loves chipmunks.

It's OK...

No matter how crazy the world is, the flowers are still here.

An evening walk...

... is a great way to see old friends.

And then...

...The osprey circled and flew closer to me, as if proud of its catch.

The osprey sat patiently in a tree above the lake till just the right moment.  It swooped down instantly, grabbed a good sized fish, and now its six-foot wingspan is carrying it and the fish home to the nest.  It was magical to see.
