Blackberry season is fast approaching.  When Courtney was little, I would send her and a friend up the hill with buckets to pick blackberries.  Then we would make a great Jane Brody recipe for Blackberry Cobbler.

Beauty -

When I look at the world as if I am going to take a photo, I see things I never saw before.  The minute and special seem to pop out at me and those moments when something huge isn't unfolding can be the most rewarding.

Old Columbia Highway

Whenever I visit my daughter at the University of Idaho, I like to take extra time to drive up through the old Columbia Highway.  Above the Gorge, with hairpin turns, lack of guardrails, orchards and beautiful soaring views of the valley down below this drive is absolutely stunning.

Coeur d'Alene

Coeur d'Alene is gorgeous!  I especially love it on a sunny day but lately, every time I visit it looks like this cloudy and gray.  It's still breathtakingly awesome.

My Life on The Road

I had one crazy, stressful summer.  I started commuting in June an hour 20 minutes twice a day.  To compound the misery, I was not working simple 8 hour days.  My days were at least 10 hours and when I wasn't at work, I was on call 24/7.  The best part of my day was the drive home through the country.  I would pause and snap a shot.  By the time I got home, although exhausted, I was grateful for the beauty at the end of my day.  The sun bounces on the tips of the corn stalks just out of Coburg, Oregon.

Silver Mountain

I visited Courtney in Idaho.  We took a short road trip to Kellogg, ID and while there road the world's longest sky gondola up the side of Silver Mountain, 4,000 feet.

Two Curious Deer

Two deer in our backyard.  They are young, even though they have lost their spots and so curious about our cat Simon.  They are staring directly at him.
