My Girl

Lily and I got to spend the day at the zoo together.  We had a blast and got to spend some quality time together.  I wish she could stay this young forever : )

Mt. St. Helens

Today is the 29th anniversary of the eruption of Mt. St. Helens.  I had the opportunity to visit the area this weekend.  A fresh snowfall occurred earlier in the week but this weekend gave us wonderful temperatures in the high 80s.


Its a pretty cool mountain which has had a flat top since its eruption.

Here is nearby Mt. Adams:


And a view from within Gifford Pinchot National Forest:


And a pretty little Fairy Slipper Orchid:


And a HUGE Ponderosa Pine tree, one of the largest in the world:
