Last View from Trillium

I visited Trillium Lake for the last time in 2013 this past Sunday. The road will be closed for winter and will not reopen again until late May or early June. It was a crystal clear day, except for the airplane contrail that drifted close to Mt Hood. Very shortly after I snapped this photo, the winds picked up and the mirror in the water went away.

Mirror Image of Autumn

The road to my favorite place, Trillium Lake, was scheduled to close (according to the interwebz, so who really knows) today. So I made a point to go up and visit on Sunday. The leaves were just starting to change, and the lake was mirror still when I arrived. I went up with my Mom and son, and told Mom that I better get the reflective shots right then, because the wind could pick up at any time. Within 5 minutes of taking this shot, they in fact did and did not die down the entire time we were there.

Praying Mantis

I took last week off from posting. I have so much going on right now. We are closing on buying our first house in the next week, and because of all the packing and organization, it is hard to find time to get out with my camera. But I put aside some time this weekend, so I have some early autumn stuff to share :)

We spotted this praying mantis while out on a walk through a field a weekend ago. I had never seen such a large one before. It was actually pretty creepy!
