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.
