Up, Up, Up in the Sky

Monday, WC came over on the ferry for an afternoon and an evening. The weather wasn't as promising as last week with JB, but we went UP anyway. The marmot wasn't out. Yes on ravens, and gray jays. Patchy vistas of cloud with snowy peaks showing through. Only five days after the previous jaunt, a lot more of the snowpack has melted; the grassy slopes just there are greener. The deer were lounging in the grass.

Thank you, Olympic National Park.
