On our way to Portland we stopped at the Mt. St. Helens visitors center. We watched a film on how it blew up back in 1980. It was very interesting...but sad. We didn't drive all the way up to it but I pulled over to take a photo of it. We had a wonderful time meeting up with some friends of ours who drove up from Klamath Falls, Oregon and met us half way.
I took this photo a couple of years ago from an airplane. You can
It was a crisp 38 degrees this morning but the sky was crystal clear. I got ready, grabbed my camera and headed for the woods behind where we live. Besides my hour walk I took a few photos after I was finished. I loved hearing the crunch of the leaves under each step I took, the crisp air, as well as the the smell of the great outdoors. There is just something about a morning out in nature. I loved it!
