Summer afternoon in the North Cascades

The road twisted temptingly and we followed it up into the mountains...

...stopping to linger in fields sprinkled heavily with dandelions...

and admiring the leafy goodness of summer foliage against skies of the most gorgeous blue.

Is there anything more delicious than a summer picnic?
Only a summer picnic complete with cherry pie 
and a nap with a favorite puppy under a leafy canopy.

Do you agree that the best treatment for feet that have been in shoes too much
is a fast dip in icy glacier snowmelt? 

Tiptoeing across a stream on granite and shocking your feet in the chilly bubbles...

Oh, summer, you leave us smiling and breathless!

There is nothing on earth like the mountains near home in July.

"Summer afternoon - summer afternoon;
to me those have always been the two most beautiful words
in the English language."
-Henry James-
