Ah what great trip, to see my friends in Issaquah in the Snoqualmie Valley. About 35 minutes drive from busy airport of Seattle , WA I feel transformed into pure nature. Well I am a Californian and at this time of the year anywhere where it is green and lush I feel embraced by all this beauty. I got to pick salmon berries right from the bush, there is something about feeling so real when picking berries .
My friend Amy feels just the same way, here she is harvesting some rhubarb for a great pie, ya she lives here. Amy is a great talented writer ! Being so involved into the local community offering information’s of what’s going on as far as events, food bank etc… she has her own website snovalleyscene, it’s a MUST to check it out.
So one day she took me along with a group and a naturalist leader for a hike up to Rattlesnake lake mountain. It was beautiful hike when we got to the top it started to rain, really pouring, and I had looked forward for a grand view over the valley.
That could be just my backyard…..
or maybe a yard on the roof???
This would be my spot , a bench with a book for the day. But it’s actually my friend’s back yard!
Listening to the gurgling sound of the water at the creek and gazing at the light’s reflections,..
