So, went hiking some this summer. Took pictures too.

This first set is a few from a small hike just a few minutes out of town here.

This second set is from an all day hike over in RMNP... about three hours drive (and we left at 4am.)

Couple highlights for the second album.

I just love the dark woods.

Squirrel!

Chipmunk!

awww you left the (errr....whatever than thing is. fat squirrel or beaver or something...) out of the highlights.

The rest is very pretty, though.
I don't hate everyone, I'm just very, very disappointed in them.

It was a marmot... also know as a woodchuck. I couldn't get a good shot of it, as it seemed a bit under the weather as well as under the rock. The first squirrel I thought was the best, but all the times it was actually standing in a cool pose, my stupid camera's autofocus tried for the wrong point. I think one of the first "toys" I'm gonna buy now that I've got a good paying job is a good camera.

man, I shoulda known it was a woodchuck (which I will now always remember as the lovechild of a very fat squirrel and a beaver ><; )

I've always wanted to see nature in that sense. The last time I went on a hike was when we went to Oak Hammock Marsh. And trust, it doesn't compare to the mountains and lakes in the pix.

I love seeing the world like that.  I think that in it's way, Seattle is just as beautiful in its complexity and busy noise as Mt Rainer is in it's quiet simplicity.

I just miss seeing things like that.
