Mountain Views

It was uncharacteristically sunny earlier this week, and that always makes me feel like going up into some of the hills to check out the view. It's hard to tell here, but if you view the original size, this panoramic has all 3 mountains. From left to right: Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood.

That might take a while to load, so if it's longer than you feel like waiting for, I also took pictures of each mountain on its own. Mt. St. Helens, pictured on the left, with the Fremont Bridge and Mt. Adams on the right with the pink US Bancorp tower.:

Mt. Hood, on the left, with the Ross Island Bridge...and then a friendly beast we met along the way:

Mt. Hood Lion Cat

It was a little hazy out, which was pretty neat. I love the way the pine trees look on a day like that. On most days in the winter there's that layered look to them because of the fog. It's back to grey skies and misty rain this weekend, but we have to keep all our moss happy somehow.

And just a gentle reminder, my giveaway ends tomorrow afternoon.
