There is nothing more beautiful to me than the deep mountain sounds of the Cascades. Though the fog obscured most of the mountains on this morning, the roaring waterfalls were still audible, along with the breeze, the birds, and the rain. My idea of the perfect spring day. :love:

Another beautiful day in the mountains.  The depth from left to right entices me.  Trees in view, trees less in view, and then fog, great stuff here.  I'm enjoying your images very much.

It really does have this magical quality...it's magical in a different way from the other magical places like the North Cascades and the Gorge...but still magical and full of that atmosphere I love so much. =D Really appreciate the kind words, sweetie. And for what it's worth, I'm glad you were there to witness it with me! :hug:
