Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #218: Over the Hill

At age 73, I still don't think of myself as "over the hill".  However, I have taken some hills in my long life.  Here in Western Washington, we are hemmed in by the Cascade Mountains to the East, and we cross them often.  On the way to Stevens Pass, the road winds by Mount Index. …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #210: My Three Favorites

I'm definitely not a professional photographer, so none of my photos have been published, except right here on my blog.  And it's really hard to choose favorites, since everything I post here is a memory, and brings back to life places I've been.
