My end of town, although largely suburban, still supports a mix of commercial business and agriculture. Although not the major focus of this sunset photo, you can see a cornfield in the picture.Yes, that's corn next to a sidewalk. Behind me is a large parking lot which supports an office building housing a major accounting firm. At the end of this road, a left turn an a half mile drive will take you to the largest indoor shopping mall in a 50-mile radius, with over 100 stores.

(Warning: theme-stretch ahead...)

Around Narada Falls in Mt. Rainier National Park, there were numerous warning signs about not getting too close to the falls.

I was happy to just lean over the fence and capture this rainbow.

When we hiked into the forest to make our way to Second Beach on the Olympic Peninsula, I was worried about the quality of my photos, because there was a lot of mist in the air. Turns out, if you use the mist to your advantage, you can take a quality shot.

We have spent the last 12 days on vacation in the lovely Pacific Northwest. I've taken hundreds of photos. Below is one taken early in the trip, at the Gold Creek Pond in the Snoqualmie National Forest.

I love to travel!! We are in the Pacific Northwest right now, enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Olympic Peninsula. We were lucky to see these beautiful eagles on one of our outings.
