Pac NW Beauty


There is something very awesome about living in the Pacific Northwest, especially in the fall. The trees evolve into a wild array of color - from the deep greens of the cedars and firs to the incredible yellows of the maples and alders. The hills surrounding our home are a perfect example of the natural beauty that I love.

then there is Mount Rainier - it stands as a noble giant in the distance. During the fall, the early morning hours provide enormous entertainment each day. Here is the view we saw four days ago:


and then yesterday, Oct 14 we saw this view at 6:00 am from our deck. At certain times, when the curve of the earth is just right, the mountain casts a shadow on the sky. amazing! We live about 1/2 hour (as the crow flies) from this mountain.. and what would be about a 2-3 hour drive by car. I never tire of looking at it. It has provided many ideas for colorways in my hand dyed fiber.

Ah your pictures are making me homesick, Teyani. The one with Rainier casting a shadow is extraordinary.

Thanks for the supplement suggestion. I'll make sure to check it out.

Cheers!
