This past weekend we were able to get away for one last little bit before winter sets in.
It was beautiful and sunny and oh so peaceful.
I never get tired of coming to this secluded camping spot.
The beautiful little pond for fishing.
Yes there are still a few trout swimming around. I am sure they are feeling the seasons changing too.
Have you ever seen moss so thick on the side of a tree that ferns are able to grow there?
It pretty much confirms that we get our share of rain here in the Pacific Northwest.
I love the bursts of color the trees and foliage display.
We even were able to find a frog. We spent a week here last August where two of our grandsons, Spencer and Landon had so much fun catching frogs. I posted about them here.
(It looks like my hubby could use some hand lotion.)
Here the poor little thing is trying to make it's escape.
There were also dragonflies galore. They seemed a little dazed but would stop and get warmed up by the sun and then take off again.
A unique looking bee landed on the outside of the truck window. It was a pale yellow color with huge bulging eyes.
One of the many waterfalls that we came across while driving on old logging roads in the mountains.
More of the changing foliage
This is a shot of Mt. St. Helen's from the northeast side.
You can see the crater on the top right hand side.
Not too far from the place where I took the photo of Mt. St. Helen's I got this shot of Mt. Rainier.
We really do live in a very beautiful place, I feel so blessed.
