To me, mountains are more than just a view or something we climb. It’s a reminder of how small I am compared to this world. Along with that, how small a lot of things in life are. It’s a reminder that there’s more to appreciate in life and that there’s always something bigger to focus on.

I wish I had a bigger lens to capture how magnificent seeing this eagle in the wild was. In fact, I think we saw four. On the way here, we actually came upon one on the beach eating a carcass. So we parked & watched in awe.
He waited as his daughter walked out slowly behind him, looking as radiant and stunning as a bride on her wedding day can be. She gently tapped his shoulder and he turned around... stay tuned for Part 2 of this picture story. It will make your heart melt.

The weather was rainy in Seattle and on the west side of the mountains, so we drove to east side of the cascades and the weather was perfect. Next time it is rainy in Seattle just drive a couple hours and it will feel like you are hiking in California.
Parking lot – don’t stop where all the cars park, there is more parking if you drive up past the “Trail” sign.
Wear: long hiking pants and a t shirt. Lots of vegetation on this trail.
Food: Bring one sandwiches, chips, and 2 water bottles.
Highlights: little creeks, tons of wild flowers, beautiful views of Mount Stuart and Rainier if it is a sunny day. Not too many people on this trail so it was very peaceful. So many butterflies!
Tip: No toilets so make sure to go to the restroom in Cle Elum. There were a lot of bees but none of them “bugged” us.
Good times fishing on the Pacific Coast during the first weekend of Halibut season. Unfortunately, no halibut, but plenty of black sea bass, rock fish and this handsome little sea-dragon. #pnw#fishing#neahbay
“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” -Eleonora Duse
