Day Dreaming

I’ve taken a lot of pictures this year but simply haven’t taken the time to add them here too.  I found a sliver of time and here is a medley of pics from the past few months.  I will do better at keeping my blog updated now that I’m feeling re-inspired again.  Recently I haven’t felt as inspired as I had in the past 365 days.  I’m not sure if it’s my job getting the best of me or if I’m simply feeling frustrated about feeling tied down to work and  maybe even a wee bit lonely.  I’ve done a lot over the past few months.  I’m still biking and spending lots of time with my doggies.  I day-dream a lot about spending my days traveling and taking pictures.  Maybe one day I can figure out a way to make that a full-time reality.  Taking pictures, riding my bike and spending time with the dogs have been the things that make me passionate and excited about life.  My job…not so much.  Thanks for taking the time to listen and enjoy these photos.

Memorial Day on Mt. Si

This is how I spent my Memorial Day on May 26th, 2014.  Hiking with friends in the Cascade Mountain Range.  We had a mixed bag of weather but ended with beautiful sun breaks when we needed them.  This is our picture story 🙂

Our gear! We were prepared with all the essentials in case of emergency. Hiking poles recommended.

The trees are so tall that all you can do is look up and see green all around. Lots of moss growing on the trees every where.

Steady pace keep trekking because before long you will not have the luxury of these types of steps when we close to the top it gets rocky rocky road.

When we arrived at the top a cloud was sitting there. Within 20 minutes it floated away and the sun came out to play.

There are two people in black standing at the top of the tree line. This will give you scale of the hay stack!

The Memorial

IMG_20140526_180418

note: fire arm was carried up top discreetly, hidden and with respect. Sole purpose was for staged photo at top to memorialize all veterans. Magazine was empty. All in accordance with the laws and registered in the State of Washington.

The Unit! These veterans all served together historically in such places like Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.
