Over a week and half ago now, Mr. G. and myself went for a four and half mile walk, right here in the valley. We had never walked this sort of hidden road before. (it is a dead end)
The weather was very quiet and it was a bit murky, but a lovely afternoon nevertheless with the promise of nicer weather for the next few days.

We met this mama cow and her two babies and that was about it. Well, maybe two bicyclists and one more walker, but that was it. Oh no, a couple of dogs came running up towards us and were super friendly. We also saw two horses in the field, but that really was about it... <wink>

Check out the cow weather-vane on top of the barn,
 there were two of them!
Yep, a nice walk indeed! {smile}

The nice weather did arrive the next day, just look at all that sunshine!

But then the rain returned again and now our valley is flooded once again and most of the roads are closed, the sixth time since October if I remember correctly. Not to worry: we have lots of websites we can check and our house is never in danger...

Taken from the car yesterday...

Trees stuck underneath the bridge, Tolt River.

Tolt River, doubled in size...

This week Mr. G. is enjoying his winter break and it is nice to have some company at home. Today was a dry day and we did quite a bit of yard work. This time of year all that yard work looks so daunting, but I know that a little bit at a time will do the trick!

  1. Beautiful scenery- isn't wonderful what a walk and some blue sky can do? The snow has melted here and we are eagerly raking and preparing our yard and garden for spring.
    Lovely images and textures :)

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
