Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington


Mount Rainier off the White Pass highway



I know the elevations out west are totally different than in the east where we live in Virginia. But I found there we very many similarities to the views & whatnot. Washington & Oregon do have a lot of likes to Virginia. I could definitely live out there. so gorgeous!!! but there would have to be water. I found the area we did visit of California were so water-less that I longed for my home state terribly. I don't know how folks live out there in those lands??! (those sheep are Shawn & Shelia.)


Do you recall the painter Bob Ross, well, when I see the tree above I think of how he would teach you to paint. Those tree are amazing!! I have so many other photos from this park, it was tough to narrow down the shots. Hope you had a blast viewing them too. Beth ( :

Hello Beth, pretty images of Washington state. We passed by many lakes in the Cascades Mountains of Washington State. And Oregon had some pretty lakes by Mt Hood. Maybe it was just where you were touring? Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Oh, Beth, I would not have minded if you had posted more pics. This is such a beautiful area.

Great photos! We went to Mt Rainier this summer! We'd start out at the bottom and the sky would be beautiful blue, by the time we started getting to higher elevations - gray and cloudy! Two days in a row! We're pretty sure the mountain was being temperamental and didn't like us! LOL

I love all those evergreens!

Lovely views of Washington. I've been out there but mainly to visit my husband's daughter and her family. I've been to California too and I share your opinion of the Los Angeles basin: too dry! Flat and crowded too, with dirty air!

Gorgeous scenery! Finland is very flat, but I love all our small lakes and the sea.

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;
