The brutal dry spell for our area causing unprecedented forest fires is relieved finally with a little wet.

Nice photos, I sure miss it out there. My brother and his wife just came back from a trip out west. Almost all their photos had some kind of smoke in the background.

These are superb landscapes! Looks like Scotland weather. I really like the way you composed #2, with the bridge in the distance.

"Aye", an average of 150 rainy days in Seattle and 50 more cloudy ones. I think the Highlands west get 250 days. Amazing. The western Olympic mountains though in WA will get over 12 ft (3.65 m)of rain per year. That may top what Scotland gets.

Thanks. Yes this is a lovely state, very diverse ecosystems. He must live in the central part of the state.

Ah yes it is a challenge even in the forest because everything is mammoth sized. Even the ferns in my area are one meter tall on average.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I have never tired of the diverse countryside WA state has from desert to temperate rain forest and some of the tallest mountains in the US. We get 60 ft of snow in the mountains on average per year.

It's still summer here actually. But autumn-like in the mountains. Thanks for viewing.
