Walks in His Gardens--Washington State

I am still up --itch, itch -- and waiting for the medicine I put on the bites to stop the itch; normally it does that fairly quickly. Since I am up with little to do---here are some photos from around the Pacific NW. The first ones are from Washington state. These are mostly scanned images of photo prints I took years ago.

Ferry--on this ride there were some musicians that were playing for the passengers. One of them reminded me of a High School friend. The Puget Sound is a beautiful waterway...

Seattle--I LOVE this place:) When I lived there I liked the U of W area (go Huskies!), Space Needle, Golden Gardens, Alki Beach and Woodland Zoo -- besides other areas. Now, of course, the traffic is worse and getting around is a bit difficult at times. Still it never fails to thrill me to go there...

Hurricane Ridge -- this is part of the Olympic Mts and you can access it by a fairly short drive up (and I do mean UP) from Port Angeles. It is worth your time if you love mountains and amazing views!! And as long as you are in this area, you might as well drive to Crescent Lake when you are done up here. I LOVE the Olympic Peninsula!

This is my son, years ago, in the Hurricane Ridge area. See--all of us LOVE animals!

And here is the famous, totally awesome National Park lodge at Longmire in the Mt Rainier National Park. If you go here, you have to walk the Trail of the Shadows (and tell me what you think of it) and then visit Narada Falls, Paradise Valley & Paradise. Actually everything is worth seeing in the park so have fun and spend some time there! For a photo of Paradise, in late spring, see the post here. Still need to find my other photos from Mt Rainier--the Paradise Valley was amazing in the snow!

OK--itching subsiding and I am really, really tired so night all!

Blessings, Aimee

Hi, Aimee!
I love the pix of Washington. We lived in Tacoma when I was little, and one of my aunts lives on Bainbridge Island. The pictures brought back happy memories.
As always, I enjoyed visiting your garden spot.

Glad I could help stir happy memories for you! As I posted the photos looking at them did the same for me! I guess that is one of the reasons I take so many pictures!
Pleased you enjoyed the garden too--right now I am trying to figure out how to incorporate a wildflower garden somewhere on our land...a garden is never done!
Blessings, Aimee

Hi Analog-
I do appreciate your comments but have to say that I wish you had left the link out to the business site.
Thanks for your understanding about this matter and have a great evening!
Blessings, A
