A Weekend in Washington

Kim and I decided to head north for the weekend (well at least for about 24 hours or so). We set up camp a few feet off the road near Washington’s Lower Lewis River Falls.

And it contains hundreds of miles of wild and scenic rivers and a geological beauty that rivals desert lands that many Oregonian’s believe only exist in southern Utah.  Here are some shots from a trip I recently made to Leslie Gulch in late June.

Some people have a strange idea of fun.  For me it’s all about staying up for over 24 hours to spend the night on a Mountain watching and photographing the stars. The clear skies and new moon last night called for a bit of a star party! Here’s the night sky over Mount Hood and Trillium Lake.
