Another picture post.

What can I say? I'm lazy. The thought of actually writing doesn't do anything for me right at the moment.

As usual, I woke up waaaay too early ... around 4:30 I think. I spent the morning just puttering around before taking a nap with Stoli. This afternoon, it was beautiful out, so we headed up to Snoqualmie Falls.

The Cascade Mountains heading east out of Seattle:


Having a heat wave ... :





The falls from above:



The lights they use to illuminate the falls at night - they're about 5 feet in diameter:




Anyone who was a fan of the show "Twin Peaks" in the early '90's will recognize the Salish Lodge at the top left of the falls. This was the Great Northern Hotel in the TV series:





We hiked down to the bottom of the falls - to the end of the boardwalk overlooking the river:





Some people don't know how to read signs, and climbed off the raised boardwalk to climb the rocks out closer to the falls:





Among them - Scott the Scofflaw:




A deer by the side of the road as we drove back:




The Seattle skyline from Interstate 90 - unfortunately, the Olympic Mountains are a little too hazy to see in the background, but you can make out a faint outline:




Heading down to the I-90 floating bridge to cross Lake Washington:





Going into the Mt. Baker tunnel - I wouldn't want to live up above it, but there are some nice homes up there:




Just a few blocks from home:




Scott cut the grass in the back yard ... and Kali thought it was funny to attack the lawn mower:




Off to dinner at a cool Mexican restaurant nearby:



More later ... off to clean the house for a while.

So, do I get my Pacific Northwest card pulled if I admit to you that I've never been to the Falls? Past it, many many times. But, shame on me, I've never been over to it. Should have come up and gone with you boys.

Oh, I talked with Kali today. She said, "Arf arf. Arf. Arf, arf!"

Save some of the beautiful weather for when we're there in August, please.
