We took 2 days to visit the North Cascades Highway (Hwy 20) to Diablo Lake area. It is late in the season for a visit, but hey, we had the days off. I got a few nice shots of some of the autumn color and the very cool, winding dam on Lake Diablo. I was disappointed that there was not enough light to get the milky, turquoise color on the lake from the stone milk generated by the glaciers that feed the lake.

Ben and Bette came to town to visit for a few days and on the way to the airport to drop them off , we visited the Museum of Flight. It really is a great place to spend the day. The planes are restored to perfection and the displays are awesome. I really love the way that the planes are hung in the main gallery. All pointing in the same direction at different levels with light streaming into the gallery from windows ringing 3 sides of the exhibit. The SR-71 is particularly impressive. I would recommend a visit,

12th Street Bridge

Published September 29th, 2011

The 12th Street Bridge crosses I-90 south of Seattle and is a perfect spot to shoot the cityscape and the light trails from freeway. I was shooting from the bridge with two other photographers. One was from Miami and the other a local photographer.

Heather Lake, Cascades, Washington

Published September 16th, 2011

We hiked with our new friends, Chantel and Greg, to Heather Lake. We got a late start because Greg worked the night before and had to hike in the rain the whole 4 miles, but we had a great time. On the hike out, we ran out of day light and had to hike in the dark. It was a bit scary, but we made it intact. I was only able to take 5 bracketed shots because the rain was pretty heavy and the bandana that I put over the camera was getting saturated. Hiking in the Cascades is a wonderful experience with so much green that is such a departure from Arizona hiking. There is so much moisture in the air and so I sweat a gallon per mile and I am always dripping wet when we reach our destination. Another thing that I have learned about hiking in the northwest is that anything worth seeing always comes with switchbacks.

I plan to go back on a dryer day to shoot the lake more thoroughly. Anybody interested?

Discovery Park in Seattle

Published August 24th, 2011

While visiting the San Juan Islands, I tore my medial head of my gastrocnemius muscle. It is one of the calf muscles and is a common injury in the middle aged, weekend warrior category. It was the third time this year that I have torn it, and yes just maybe I had not rested it enough to have it completely heal. Well it wasn't hurting any more and the hike was supposed to not be so strenuous, but the last 20 feet of the hike to Jackal Lagoon was washed out and very steep. I was carrying my camera on the tripod and my usual 40 pounds of gear down a steep slope when I turned to help Lisa down a tough part. I felt the pop in my calf as the muscle tore and knew going back up the hill and hiking the rest of the day was going to be tough going. It limited my shots a bit, but we still made Deadman's Bay and the Lime Kiln Lighthouse.

We were looking for an easy walk online and found Discovery Park which is an old military installation on one of the points forming the north mouth of Ellio ...
