When the Moon and Planets Come Together!


I hope tonight I will have more time to play with my settings!  Last night I was out with a friend and as we were leaving the restaurant our other friend pointed out this awesome sight!

I was trying not to speed home so I could break out the camera, clean off the dust and capture a few shots before it disappeared behind the hill!  It has been awhile once again maybe this will snap me out of my photography slump!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day or night where ever you may be on this amazing planet!

And That, is One Happy Dog!!!


On the off-chance I decide to jog, I like to take photos for proof!  You know I’m not lying when his tongue hangs that low! Ha, ha!  This post is for M-R.  Had to get  a recent picture of your favorite on-line pup with the freakishly long tongue!  I hope you all have a great day and get the same smile I did when I turned the camera around and saw that crazy face!

Starting Over, Still Learning, Trying Not to Give Up!


Do I still have followers?  I sit here on this cold fall day and wonder why I give up on myself so easily…

This picture was taken yesterday in my PJs kneeling down on the soaked driveway, with my camera wrapped in a lite plastic cover that you would use to cover fancy clothes.  Because that is all I could find in a hurry!  Trying to catch the rain drops as they landed and splashed up I just couldn’t quiet capture it.  After several attempts I discovered that this one spoke to me the most.  Or perhaps, like the title suggests I gave up…

Should you still have me in your sights I hope you enjoy the photo!

Gone awhile! Stevens Pass to Stehekin Section K of the PCT



Spent 8 days and 7 nights on Section K of the PCT, Stevens to Stehekin!


This was my home!


We walked and walked chased by thunder storms and lightning strikes!


We made it to the top of hills and the bottom of valleys.


Looking at this photo makes my tummy flip flop.  We were on the other side of the valley looking at our next days adventure.  The switchbacks in the green brushy side of the hill across the way! That section decided it for me, I will not do this section again!


Who needs a newspaper with a 360 view such as this!  You still want to make it quick! 😉


Same Loo the only one on the section with such a view!


Just making sure no one gets lost! This one was pretty with the flower!


My husband doing what he does best scaring the crap out of me! Remember that brushy hillside we finally emerged from its brushy wet hot grasp to look at yesterdays camp across the way below the snow!


Glacier Peak in all its glory!


You may have heard of all the fires in Washington well there are places to get away from it such as this place. The Smoke is still visible as evening creeps closer and the smoke plumes begin to rise in the distance!  I hope you enjoyed some of the pictures of our trip!














On a hike the other day we came across this interesting sight.  Lightning strike perhaps?  I have said it before the pines are my preference for hiking in and around.   There was really no trees to be seen on this hike!  I thought it was good exercise but the beauty although there for some, was lacking in my opinion.

It did take me back to my pre-teen years the smell of the sagebrush took me back to the days I would explore the hillsides of Malaga with my Brothers.
