Summertime Ski Hill

Hemlock Valley is a small ski resort
in the Douglas ranges near Chehalis.
It was interesting to see the deserted ski hill in summer mode. 
It was quiet, the views were wonderful
and the brightly, blooming wild flowers were gorgeous.

.Cheerful Blooms

       Flower pots add a splash of colour to my garden
     and I love the new varieties of Echinacea. 
  This one is a lovely cheerful red.

Along the River

Running across the dated train bridge,
 I was amused at the aggressive blackberry plants creeping across the bridge even though the bridge is still in use.

The smoke was lifting and the skies were clearing,
the air fresher, making it easier to breathe.

Orange Moon

The particles of smoke in the evening sky
create a beautiful orange moon,
floating above the dark mountain shadow.
We have had a week of smoke filled skies.

Smoky Skies


Because of all the fires raging in BC,
we have been enveloped in smoky skies
which have been veiling the hot sun,
 giving a sense of eeriness. 
Here the early morning sun attempts to brighten our day.
