Inspired by a place I know and love dearly: hiking around the Saddlerock and Dry Gulch areas in the Foothills of Wenatchee.
Sad but true, summer is on its way out for this year. I hope everyone enjoyed the season. I love, and look forward to autumn, but summer will always be my greatest love.
Once again we're in "fire season" in central/eastern Washington (and much of the western US as well) and we all wait for news on how friends and family are faring this time around. No good comes from any of it -- except maybe the rallying of strangers to help each other. That's truly something to witness -- that willingness to help no matter how daunting or dangerous.
It also changes the skies. Smoky and grey during the day, we lose our beautiful blue of summer, but gain amazing sunsets. It's one thing we don't see very often, those gorgeous reds and pinks of more tropical sunsets. So I'll paint them while I can.

A frosty winter morning walk along the Columbia yielded some pretty magical sparkly light.
