I have never been anywhere like this before where it was 90 degrees and up but dry. Virginia is a really humid state when it gets hot. This is at the John Day Fossil Beds in central Oregon. It was totally worth a trip even though it was a long drive but it was just amazing scenery for a guy who hasn’t seen this before. The soil ans rock are fragil and ask people to stay off of it but occasionally you see some foot prints of people that didn’t and those prints stay for a very long time.

Wizard Island is the only island in Crater Lake and it is a cinder cone of the volcano that once stood there. The water is so blue there and you can see snow on the north sides and areas that are cast in long shadows throughout the day. Hope you can go some time I only wish it wasn’t as crowded when I did.

Railto beach in Olympic National Park has some wonderful stones and pebbles along with large drift wood. These hikers are headingg north up the neach to better views that I wish we had the time to go up.

I woke up early in the morning on Yale Lake not to far from Mt. Saint Helens. I went out to see if I could get a long exposure. There was a light wind that made small waves which is giving it that look around the rocks in the water.

Crater Lake was extremely gorgeous and the water is blue. The water is cold but supposedly really clean. The sky out there is more blue then it is here on the east. I’m not sure if the haze and other things in our sky hamper our view but it just seams clean out there.
