Serendipity Photos


When traveling in a target-rich environment for photography, be prepared to immediately take a photo. This is always a good axiom to remember.

On a return trip from the Yakima area via Cougar, I was treated to blue skies and sunshine.

I was also treated to Mountain Sheep, Elk and beautiful views of the glaciated mountains of Goat Rocks, early morning light on Mt. Rainier and close-up views of Mt. St. Helens.

Before beginning the drive, I put a telephoto lens on the DSLR. Now I was prepared for anything.

Besides getting some nice photos along the way, I had the privilege of seeing some of the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
