The Daily Post Photo Challenge: On the way.

Michelle’s Daily Post Photo challenge has us posting a photo that we took on the way to something else. Good idea. I visited Mt. Baker in WA State last week with some friends from Iowa. As we sadly viewed the  melting glaciers on the mountain, we stumbled across a beautiful Spring flower that I don’t see often – An avalanche Lily.

The Daily Post: Scale, Mt. Stuart and Wind turbines

Michelle W. has called for a study of scale this week. My entry was taken recently of Mt. Stuart, located in the Cascades Mountains of Washington State. At 9, 416 feet above sea level, its claim to fame is that it is the largest chunk of exposed granite in the contiguous US forty-eight states. Here it rises above the fog-filled Kittitas Valley of Eastern Washington with wind turbines shown in the middle ground left.
