In my back yard...



I felt like the paparazzi today and not because I was following a celeb, but because I was chasing a mountain! Here in the beautiful northwest, we are very lucky to be surrounded by beautiful mountains, trees, oceans, and lakes. Today had to have been the nicest day in about three months. So of course I leave the house without my camera and head off for running errands. Not long after we left the house did I realize that Mt. Rainer was out and very clear. Normally it can be seen by it's tip, but today the whole mountain was out. So, I quickly ran home and grabbed my camera to take pictures and before I knew it, I was chasing the mountain for it's perfect angle. After driving around for about an hour, I finally found the perfect angle. It a beautiful mountain that takes my breath away every time in graces us with it's presence. It's a must see! Hope you enjoy my picture for today:)

This second picture is taken in the same spot as the first, but I was lucky enough to be there as the sun was setting...absolutely stunning!


P.S. Sweetie this is for you...I thought of you the whole time. I am SO sorry that I did not get Heidi in this picture...next time I promise:) Love you...MUAH!

When I saw these beautiful pictures my first tought was that it was Mt. San Helen with it's dented peak..
Mt. Rainer is hardly ever visible from Salem, where I live, but in clear days Mt. San Helen is lining up with our Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson. A beautiful sight.
