Is it 5pm yet? I am looking forward to this weekend! My husband doesnt work tonight. Tomorrow we are going up Mt Hood to go fishing for the day. On Sunday I have a photo shoot at a birthday party for extended "family". Should be a fun one. Have a great weekend everyone!

A pair of views from my drive up to Mt St Helens a few weekends ago. I took this one from one of the many viewpoints along the highway to the mountain. Looking up the valley, you could see the wide riverbed below, washed out from the explosion. The 'thin' looking river that winds through the bed is a normal size river, but looks smaller due to the washed out banks. In the greenspace to the north of the river you could see elk grazing if you looked through the provided scopes at the viewpoint.

Well, that didn't last long. The sunny week and a half we enjoyed in the Portland Metro area has gone and the past 3 days have been cloudy and cool. Yesterday it actually rained! From the looks of things out there right now, I think it will rain again today also.

This is the tallest rock stack I have ever been able to accomplish. My mom has always been a big rock stacker, and I totally got the love of the difficult task from her. Rock stacking is soothing and a great way to really take in the nature and environment around you.

I had no idea what this flower was called, but have found a very handy site that has photos of Pacific Northwest wildflowers, and easily found out it is a Marsh Marigold. The description on the site says its often found at the edge of snowmelt, which is very true. Thats is exactly where I found these!
