Adventures in Washington *pic HEAVY*

I am very excited to share my accumulation of summer photographs with you guys! Unfortunately, there aren't as many horse pictures as I would like, but there are lots of others. From sailing in the Puget Sound, Fishing on the Columbia River, Hiking in the Olympic rainforest(yet to come), and Backpacking in our backyard Cascade mountains, we truly enjoy every bit of beauty that Washington has to offer, especially in the summer. I'll have to narrow it down a bit, as I have 81 photos in my photobucket folder so far!
Haha, enjoy!

First, our home away from home; Chinook, Long Beach and Ilwaco Wa. (all in the same little area)

^tried my first oyster this year! Cooked, it was alright, can't imagine the darned thing slimy though

Fishing Pole On the North Jetty at the Columbia River Mouth.

Our catch of the Morning, 7 Black Bass (with a salmon set up, mind you!)

My interpretation

Fun with the camera

This transitions us into the next set of photos...
Sailing in the Straight of Juan De Fuca! Near Everett, WA
This was a new adventure for us, we just got the boat late last year, and it has been have work done on it( new engine and essentials so that us newcomers don't get stranded on the straight and pulled with the tides into the high seas! )

Forgive the anchor, have to hide your license plates...

A sailboat, just a tad smaller than our next to China Shipping

Just past Hood Canal

Beautiful boat in Port Ludlow

Trying to be helpful

Helmsman turned fisher? Uhh, I don't think so!

Now, me? I can FISH! Haha

And with the Bass scraps, we catch starfish!

Olympics in the distance, in three days we'll be on the opposite side of those.

Baby Ling-cod? Anyways, too small to keep :(

A good ending to a great day! (sad story, we had six crabs but ended with only one )

Around Leavenworth WA.

Snowgrass Flats trail to Old Snowy. This was a family trip with my Grandpa, cousin, his fiance, mom, dad, sister and myself, in memory of my grandma. This was her favorite place. 17 mile round-trip and grandpa (76) is still puttin' along!


Tent view couldn't get any better!

Edit: This is Mt Adams. I am so used to these mountains I forget to label them just because I think everybody else also recognizes them!

Old Snowy from "basecamp"

Step one: Bread on Stick
Step two: Cook over campfire
Step three: DEVOUR

Halfway up old snowy, resting to enjoy the view. In the background is Mt Rainier

Finally on top! Looking at our favorite mountain, rainier. 7920 ft in elevation

Sledding down Old Snowy, just about the best part! We brought large plastic garbage bags just for this purpose.

Mom and grandpa

Something went awry *head scratch*

go Mom, go!

And just for good measure, I will add a few pictures of Abbe :)

Here, we start losing control, but she might make it



....Thud. She landed flat on her side, of course, I missed it though.

Now she is mad and embarrassed

May I ask what that huge orange/red thing was with like a gazillion legs was?? It could not possibly be a starfish could it?

That is a "starfish" . I forget the real name.

I, too, am a native to this land. I recognized those places, if not exactly, in the general feel of them. I grew up here going camping and hiking with my dad in the forests and mountains. We did not have a boat that could sail out (only a 12 foot Lightening moored at Leschi) , but we took many ferry rides over the Sound.

I am deeply attached to this area and know it's smells, the wind, the rain, the soft light, the way you are never far from a mountain or a range, so you always know what's East and what's West. I am so please that you are sharing these photos and your obvious love for this place. We are indeed blessed.
