can we call it summer yet? ...




we went to visit my family
just south of Spokane
on the edge of the fabulous rolling hills of the Palouse


what you see here is our last day


... as we were leaving


>..  thee only day of sunshine  ..<


do not be angry with the rain
it simply does not know how to fall upwards
Vladimir Nabokov 



non the less ..
the trip home was marvalous



a 6 hour trip filled with
waterfalls and wild flowers



just living is not enough
one must have sunshine . freedom . and a little flower
Hans Christian Andersen



pluck not the wayside flower
it is the traveler's dower
William Allingham


You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free
Tom Petty



Splendid Mt Rainier showed her pretty head
to the natives she is Tahoma
mother of many waters


Cascade Range .. and Dragon's Back

..it was a good ride..

She is mine own,
And I as rich in having such a jewel
As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl,
The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.

into all that we make

Your trip back home--what visuals!
Rain--cannot fall upwards. I love the Tom Petty quote...
Beautiful new work, Lisa. X

How absolutely gorgeous! I would have been sad to have the drive come to an end, such beauty. And, as always, the new bags are glorious!

we are definitely having the midwest version of summer lately-hot, muggy and thunderstorms-how i miss the west coast!
your drive looks beautiful :)

Your views look like heaven.

Your bags...well...total love.
