Hi Susan.
I like this series.
Particularly #2 and 3 - natural beauty.
Well done with the captures.

Looks like you guys had a great trip, and the first pic is impressive. I love the Pacific NW, (stationed at Whidbey Island in early 60's) and my son/DIL/grandson live in Olympia, WA. My wife and I have been to a lot of the same places you have in your albums -- I enjoyed "browsing" them. It looks like you were on the road a long time.

Some beautiful captures, Susan. You've done my home region justice. You're welcome back anytime! Especially if it means more great captures like this.

If I may ask, what was the most memorable part of your time spent out here?

Regards,
Nate

Beautiful part of the world Susan, and you have done it proud.

Is that some one swimming bottom left, in the waterfall shot?

Thanks for the kind comments Ash. We had a great trip and I really gave the K100DSuper a workout.

We were gone one day short of six months and I'll never let my husband forget it for taking me home early. The entire WA coast was socked in with for almost the entire time we were there but it was still beautiful.

Thanks for the comments. No one swimming. It's a rock I think. We did find one guy diving off the top of a waterfall but, alas, I missed the capture even though he did it five times.

Thanks Barnster. I like taking pics of waterfalls. Needless to say, some places were waterfall heaven.

Thank you PentX Girl. If you get a chance GO and go anywhere. That's how we are spending our retirement dollar. Makes the kids happy.

I can't pick one place Nate as the most memorable. There are a few places we won't go back to for one reason or another but, all in all we had a wonderful time with lots of lovely things to look at. Our main focus for all our trips is on our national parks - they never seem to disappoint. We had snow in ND at Teddy Roosevelt NP, and for this southern girl, that was memorable. The coastline of both Oregon and Washington are so different from what you get in this area that it was really neat to see. Maine has a similar coastline without the dead trees. Antelope Canyon was memorable because it was so hard to obtain a good photo there but I did get one accepted into the PPG from there. It was all good and the best part is, we are so darn old now that we forget where we have been so we can go back and enjoy it all over.

Thanks Kevin. That one was from Lassen Volcanic NP which turned out to be pretty unique in itself. The park even has hot springs and mudpots. Really beautiful.

All three are very nice but nr.2 is really really beautiful! I like the feeling of huuuuge landscape with the tiny woman near the lake.
