We spent the day traveling to meet some dear friends we hadn't seen in years.
They live at a high elevation up the side of Mount Rainier.
Even though it was raining, it was a great trip.
stocked up firewood for the winter
Elk were everywhere...
in the field, the roads, the yards...
Most of the guys meet at the river each morning to cash in on the local limit of salmon and steelhead.
The changing of the season is just breath taking.
it's really hard to maintain a garden or a flower bed.
The deer and Elk are not afraid to camp out in the front yard.
