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

Well, you have finally posted some pictures of a place I have been. WOO HOO!!! My son lives on Bainbridge Island and we have been out there on several occasions. But NOT up the mountain. These are such pretty shots.

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.

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Northeast Creek Reservoir, Louisa, Virginia

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ... I was wondering if we would make it home. Apparently it will only affect southern Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama ... I might …
