An Afternoon Walk

An Afternoon Walk

It is spring, a glorious season where everything springs to life once again after lying dormant all winter. Green is the predominant color, and blossoms fill the trees. Spring here in Washington state is very different from Mexico although it is similar to the part of Canada where I come from.

I had been writing for a couple of hours and the sunshine beckoned me to escape to the outdoors. Although a cloudy haze intervened occasionally, it was overall a warm and pleasant day.

I updated my photos from last year to more current ones of the view from the deck.

As I walked down the road towards the highway, I noticed a neighbor’s tree in full bloom.

I paused along the highway to record this breathtaking view of the mountains.

I grew up on the prairies, very flat with not even a hill in sight. I am totally mesmerized by the beauty of the mountains here.

My walk took me past the Enchantment Park.

I wandered around the downtown area and captured this photo of a horse and carriage.

My walk home took me across a bridge with this view.

Once again those majestic snow capped mountains appeared on the horizon.

I plan on taking another walk this week in the nearby town of Cashmere, where I will also visit my favorite tree that I photographed on numerous occasions last fall when it was resplendent in its colorful red leaves. I am certain that in the spring it will now be extremely green.
