Rattlesnake Lake...

Yesterday, after all the clouds cleared, we arrived at Rattlesnake Lake, just south of I-90 towards the mountains. Only a 35 minute drive from our home...

There was a slight breeze, the sun came out, it was gorgeous. Just look at the color of the lake!

Below you see Rattlesnake Ledge. I only brought one lens so I had to make the picture in three's to fit in all its height and splendor.

On our way back we stopped by the Snoqualmie Falls. Always splendid!

We ended the day with an extraordinary dinner at Fall City Bistro: Yum!   {smile again!}

  3. Monica is right. Rattelsnaklake sounds a bit creepy.
    It does lots of things to the imagination.

    Could be the title of a dark poem
    (I fell into the lake of love,
    unfortunately this particular lake
    was called rattelsnake...
    and so on...)

    Sorry, ik heb echt maar dan ook echt veel te veel verbeelding..


How wonderful to hear from you!

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
