North Bend, WA, nearby this riverside pathway, gets about 63 inches of rain a year. I think a good portion of them fell on the day before this walk. The outdoors were even fresher and more extraordinary for it. The winter-warm air was eased with soft moisture – perfectly pleasant. And the excess water rising from the ground and foliage created lovely pockets of mist. The play of light delighted the eye and transformed the ordinary into someplace other.
These images are part of a series posted chronologically from one river walk on Jan 13/18. I wanted to take you along on this beautiful winter day and share what you might have stumbled upon if you were walking in my shoes. To take the whole walk, start with clicking on Along the Way and use right arrow or Older Posts button to scroll through them all. Or use the Search tool just below the posts to find Along the Way. I’ll keep adding images each day until we wander back home.
