Mount Baker looms over the Snoqualmie River Valley, right foreground, on my flight out to Ohio.

In the waiting area of SeaTac airport, the windowed viewing wall is one of my favorite things. The wall of glass is curved, and held in place by all the stainless steel cables.

Lift-off - looking west over Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains.
Over the Cascade Mountains, this is the general area where we go to pick the black huckleberries. I think.
We saw many forest fires, probably in the Idaho/Wyoming areas. There must have been lightening storms. The forest looks pretty sparse, and there weren't any houses or signs of habitation, so they were just left to burn themselves out.
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
Happy Trails, Buzz
