    Does everything look especially lush to you this year? It seems that we’ve had just the right amount of rain – the raindrops on these are a lovely touch. Beautiful. 🙂

    • Yes, I’ve noticed the plants are thriving. We took a drive around the Cascade Loop this past weekend, and I was amazed (and pleased) to see the levels of water in the reservoirs and rivers. This year has apparently been much wetter, though the pattern provided enough sun for me to feel like it’s been warmer. Except for today…brrrr! I hear the warmer weather is returning soon. 🙂

        Yes, water levels are really good. I don’t have the years you do to compare so I’m interested to hear your take on it, but it sure seems to me that things look good this year. And I agree, there’s been plenty of sun alongside the rain. We’ll have to remember this when the next round of drought comes…meanwhile, let’s luxuriate.
        I bet that was an enjoyable drive…we did a piece of it recently, too, out to a trailhead a few miles W of Darrington. A very nice change of scenery, getting back towards the mountains. 🙂

        • My favorite spots were Winthrop and the mountain pass between there and Burlington. White Pass?? The weather was stunning. There were still spots of snow by the road at the top of the pass, and I took a video of the surrounding peaks that had birds calling back and forth in the background sound. It was also interesting to see the area between Wenatchee and Chelan from the back highway. Coming back south on I-5 we hit intermittent downpours, but were rewarded with rainbows several times there and along hwy 203 back home. Lovely day!
