Dry Creet At Mt. Rainier


Dry Creet At Mt. Rainier

I took this photo in a dry creek bed while hiking in an interesting area at Mt. Rainier where there had been a devastating river flood a number of years earlier. This area was witness to the power, devastation, and beauty of nature.

Sierra Reflections

I was fascinated by the early morning reflections in the creek. Even though the Sierras are not "red rock" country, the dawn's light was so rosy hitting the granite peaks opposite the creek that it made for wonderful complementary colors.

Insect Highway


Insect Highway

While hiking through the woods looking for photos, this tree had fallen across the trail I was on. As I went to climb over, I noticed these furrows that had been created all along the trunk by insects, eating and burrowing into the rotting, dying wood.
