I didn't take many pictures on my week long vacation to California. I did get this one though. I am not sure what mountain this even is, but it was shortly after daybreak and the clouds were burning off. Not bad from being shot from the car window at 75 MPH ;)

About a month ago, one of my two sunflowers bloomed. The plant itself was at least 8 ft tall. It didnt take it long for the flower to become too heavy to be held upright by the stalk, so it now droops. I am waiting for it to dry completely and the seeds to form. I think that it is still pretty, even in its drying out, droopy form ;)

Autumn doesn't officially begin for another 2 weeks. However, Labor Day passed, kids went back to school, and the weather instantly changed to cooler and wet. It's like summer gave up earlier than usual. Not fair, considering the late start to summer that we got this year. Hopefully its just a passing phase and we get a few more summer-like, sunny days before the months and months of dreary cold rain.

My husband and I have returned from a 9 day vacation. We traveled to California, visited friends and family, and came home in time to watch the college football opening games.
Seeing the bare, late summer Mt Hood on the horizon means I'm home, and theres no place like it. I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful area. Traveling makes me appreciate it even more :)
