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.

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
