Washington is called the Evergreen State, and along the river pathway trees abound. Some are 40 – 60 feet (12-18 meters) tall, or so, and they tower around me as I walk. The tightly wooded section of the path from which I spotted the dogs ahead, opens out to where they were playing. As a ponderous person rather than a playful pup, I stopped here at the lake shore to reflect. The low winter sun lit my vantage point in golden light, while the opposing shore was already falling into shadow.
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.
