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

Hiking at Coldwater Lake

Over the weekend hubby and I hiked the trail
around Coldwater Lake . . . 
at the base of Mt St Helens 
(We're usually over on that boardwalk)

The trail was a bit narrow in spots
The views were beyond gorgeous

It was a wonderful trek
Even the weather cooperated

So that's what it looks like from the other side! Wow did you have beautiful clear skies and bright sunshine--which made for some phenomenal photos.

Definitely worth the hike!

Oh, Laura....this scenery is to die for, and you've recorded it so beautifully!

Beautiful scenes! To keep it in the same slant as your sidebar: I sometimes shoot in raw, and like HDR when it's subtly done:) Hubby is more the photographer, I'm the painter:)

Love your shot! Sorry I been so quiet these last couple weeks, I’ve been really ill (now finally diagnosed with Whooping Cough) and have had a very rough week. Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #31.
