This was taken from Fort Worden State Park (Port Townsend, WA) looking NE across Admiralty Inlet to Mt Baker.
This was taken a while back when I was returning from seeing my aunt up in Haines, Alaska: from the ferry getting close to Juneau.
That’s a great ferry ride: too bad I have a negative reaction about long boat rides right now or we might plan another trip.
In south central Oregon, Steens Mountain is a distinctive feature, rising to over 9000 feet. This photo is taken on the west side, looking east, near the small town of Plush. In this dry country, Steens Mountain wrings what little moisture is in the air and on the east side of the range is the Alvord Desert.

This is a series of images stitched into a panorama. Marrowstone Island is on Puget Sound north of Seattle. If you click on the image, it will be loaded larger and you will be able to see Mt Baker in the north (left side) and Mt Rainier just barely visible off the point on the right.
Here is one of the single images:

This was the moonrise on April 7, 2020 with the ferry Kennewick coming into Port Townsend. I was at the beach at Point Hudson.

This is what the moon looked like when it was coming up a few minutes earlier coming up next to Mt Pilchuck in the Cascades east of Everett.
Nice weather in Mid-March brings out plenty of beach walkers in the Puget Sound country. Point Wilson Lighthouse, with the North Central Cascades in the distance.

Being a ridge or two away from the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, the Elwha Valley still gets its fair share of rain. Not anywhere near what the westside valleys get, but still enough that there’s plenty of water. Going for a day hike, it’s always prudent to carry some raingear, regardless of the forecast.
This photo is taken at the point the road is closed due to the washout. The building in the distance is where stock is kept during the summer months. In the old days, this was the location of the Elwha store and gas station.

The lighthouse at Point Wilson at Fort Worden State Park has been an important landmark for well over a century, marking the entrance to Puget Sound from the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Those are the North Central Cascades in the background.
Here’s a close up of the light, showing the weathering from exposure to the salt air and near constant wind.
