I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

They make me smile

A River Returning to Health

About a mile from home
is the Cowlitz River
named after a local Native American tribe
 
Old pilings
 
Devastated by the eruption
of Mt St Helens... in 1980
the river is slowly returning
to its former glory

Rolling in
from the valley floor
3500 feet below
In a flash
the fog engulfed
everything around
including me

It's Poofing

It's alive
I looked up from Coldwater Lake
and caught a rare glimpse
of Mt St Helens
shooting steam into the clear blue sky
Happy dance

with her massive crater
In about 200 years
she will have rebuilt her peak
