May Mountain Madness

I love where I live. Like most western Washingtonians, the moment the sun comes out I forget the long, wet winter, the dismal grey days stretching through spring. In the warmth of the sun we see the lush and lovely world we live in and know the answer to winter's question - why do I live here? 

It's still May, and we've had weather in the high 70s. Cloudless, sunny days. The sun is a drug we are all drunk on.

The feed store is only 4 miles from my farm, off the ridge down in the valley. It's a beautiful drive. From this one spot along the road you can see farmland, woods, and both resident mountains.

Looking northeast, Mount Rainier.

Turning slightly to look southeast, Mount St. Helens.
