Photo Challenge…Earth

I admit it.  I’m a Pacific Northwest Chauvinist.  I believe that I live in one of the most beautiful places in the USA.  We are never more than 2 hours from the ocean, or the mountains, here in Western Washington.  Here are some of my favorite, beautiful, places in my corner of the Earth.

Winding Road-Eastern Washington State

It’s a ringer!  I have always loved the shrub-steppe terrain just east of the Cascades, along the Columbia River.  This kind of landscape was carved by receding glaciers, around 10,000 years ago.  All of Washington State was buried under hundreds of feet of ice!

Above is Deception Falls, which runs under US Highway 2, west of Stevens Pass in the Cascade Mountains.

Earth Day is a big fat hoax.  Human beings are NOT “destroying” the planet.  Human beings are not a blot on the environment; they were put here by God to be Earth’s stewards and its masters.  Instead of feeling guilty about having been born, celebrate “Earth Day” tomorrow by getting outdoors.  Take a walk or a ride through the streets or fields of your town, and thank God that we live on such a beautiful, bountiful planet.

    1. When the flowers have finished blooming (about a week, tulips don’t last long), they are cut and the bulbs harvested, so all you see are brown fields. The soil in the Skagit Valley is some of the most fertile in the world, and we are a very large source of tulip bulbs. I hope you enjoy your hike, our mountains are beautiful too.

  1. Thank you, Miss Wanderer. Nice blog you have there, and I hope you post pretty pictures of your hike. If you explore my blog, you will find more photos of the Pacific Northwest. Have fun! Unfortunately, I’m not on social media except for this blog. Cheers to you.
