Washington

You can’t see it from this vantage point, but the glory of Mt. Baker in NW Washington is just around the corner.  And Mt. Shuksan is just behind and even closer.  But it’s fall now and the colors of fall become primary.  I love color.  I do virtually no black & white photography and never really have.  So, it’s fall and the colors are out!

I did it.  I hate being a dense, thoughtless tourist, but I actually stopped in the middle of the road, got out with as much composure as I could muster and took a few shots.  Now there certainly wasn’t much traffic, but you never know when the next car will come racing up from behind.  I kept looking, but no, nothing.  A couple cars in front, nothing behind.  Just the seemingly unending expanse of central Washington and its wheat crop.  Everywhere I looked was planted in wheat and the road was somehow planted right in the middle of it.

I was traipsing around in the woods one day, looking for mushrooms.  Yes, I did see a few, but it wasn’t quite wet enough to find and gather any of the edible kind.  What I did find, of consequence, though, is color.  The beautiful golden yellow color that is autumns trademark.  Mixed in with the evergreens green and the quiet semi-dampness of the growing fall season, I found myself in a surprisingly pleasant and peaceful state of being.  At first I was disappointed at not finding any mushrooms of significance, but then I looked around and noticed what was there.  Such a simple thing that is sometimes so elusive.

I go up to my home town of Bellingham, WA. a couple of times a year.  One cool, cloudy fall day with nothing much happening I decided to take a drive down into the next county and found myself wandering the back roads.  I love taking the roads less traveled, biding my time, taking in a new and fresh view of familiar sites; passing rich farmland and dormant tulip fields until I came to the little town of La Conner.  It’s a quaint little town of artists and fishermen, built next to a small waterway near the mouth of the Skagit River.  The perfect place for a little lunch and a photo or two.
