Magical and Mystical

James Island - Olympic Peninsula

I was in the mood for a coastal photo this week, so I selected this shot from my archives. James Island is located at the mouth of the Quillayute River near La Push, Washington. At 160 feet in altitude, it was used in the past to spot whales by the Quillayute tribe; now it serves as a private burial ground. (I like the way the fog seems to magically float around the island in this scene.)

Autumn's Golden Glory

Glenwood, Washington

Although the season of autumn is sure to display an array of golden hues in the leaves on deciduous trees, the grasses on prairies around the country make their own golden glory. This field is in the small rural community of Glenwood,Washington.
