and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

Coldwater Lake ~ Mt St Helens

Late afternoon 
 I was the only one at the lake ~
  it was magical !
This short boardwalk was built by the National Park Service.
Thank you National Park Service . .
I love this place !

Coldwater Lake was born from the eruption of Mt St Helens, in 1980.

He-who-thinks-I'm-talking-to-computers turned to look and went "WOW" too. LOL

Amazing....and bless the NPS for making that boardwalk. What a perfect place for a stand alone moment of just BEING.

I was able to visit Mt St Helens in 2001 and I though it was so beautiful and interesting learning about the birth of a new lake. I hope I get to go back one day. Your photo is beautiful.

Simply beautiful, Laura - and how nice that you had the place to yourself ! (love your header too !).

I'm in catch-up mode (again. still ...) Really enjoyed your recent posts (esp. freshly fallen snow - I love mountains).
