Finding Beauty on a Stormy Day


Heavy rain during the night turned to a light drizzle in the morn.

Why not take a pleasant and scenic loop drive over Chinook, White and Cayuse Passes I said to myself.

Because the heavy cloud cover created dense fog in areas, the vistas were mainly missing.

But there are always elk, birds, flowers and other things to enjoy and photograph.
