...homeward bound from Washington, along the Columbia River Gorge.

Cool, refreshing...........blinding rain!
Misty, mysterious forests...
Lots and lots of flowering weeds, otherwise known as wildflowers...
and cool green hills.
Oh why oh why couldn't I have appreciated that weather?!!
And when the sun comes out and finishes melting this snow,
Lake Shasta may have absolutely no red dirt shoreline showing. I haven't seen the lake this full in decades. It was absolutely stunning.
And in today's sweltering heat (no, the grass is never greener, for very long, at least), I have those lovely memories of Pacific Northwest Rain to keep me cool(er)!
