Moon over Timothy Lake



This hazy moon shot was taken over Timothy Lake two weekends ago as I was walking the bank after dark. The moon lit up the entire area!

Strawberries

Seriously, is there anything more yummy than a fresh, bright red strawberry right off the plant, still warm from the sun?

Bald Mountain Viewpoint


On Sunday, I hiked up Bald Mountain. This short hike is kind of difficult because it goes straight up the back side of the ridge from Timberline Trail, through the woods. It is very worth it, because at the end it opens up on the face of Bald Mountain to this breathtaking view of the west side of Mt. Hood. At the bottom of the snowline you can see Muddy Fork, which is the beginning of the Sandy River. The water melts from two points off the Sandy Glacier and winds its way around Yocum Ridge. It's hard to believe the little trickle of water that you can see ends up merging into a big river.

Avalanche Lily


When hiking this weekend, at one of the forks in the trail there was a huge patch of these pretty Avalanche Lillies. The sun was hitting them just right and they practically glowed!
