PNW, Continued…

I’m finally reviewing pix from our Pacific NorthWest (PNW) Adventure, and decided to share a few more memories. So as I was saying, we reached Seattle nearly 24 hours after climbing through a hole in the SB clouds  to begin our moonlight flight. Mount Rainier welcomed us to this rainier climate.

Among the many iconic places we visited with friends and relatives, was Snoqualmie Falls near where we once had a cottage in the woods.

In this climate there’s water everywhere. Even when they had an extreme drought several years ago, to us it was a land of water. Once familiar sights, smells and sounds permeate the coastal region. Lichen adds a lush cushion to the trees.

We also braved the legendary traffic for a visit to the city, and found ourselves going in the same direction as the majority jammed to a stop on this bridge. Looking across empty lanes the other direction, I snapped the skyline.

Of course, a stop at Pike Place was required to pick up fresh salmon, snacks, and a few souvenirs for friends.

I’ll keep reviewing, and probably post more memories in coming days…
