if you visit me, I'll take you here

This weekend, we walked along cliff edges, stood on mountain tops, and washed our feet in the ocean.
We examined small wonders, such as dew drops that held worlds of mystery. 

We feasted our senses upon the wild flowers.
In Oregon, so many flowers that are cultivated for the cottage flower garden grow wild, including irises, columbine, lupine, foxglove, bleeding hearts, sunflowers, and orchids.
We wallowed for hours in sunsets.
We climbed a mysterious moutain...
...that cleared for one wonderful day to reveal vistas of more mountains, including Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood (pictured below), and Mt. Jefferson and the great Columbia River emptying into the Pacific Ocean.
And we discovered wildlife, including raccoons, bald eagles, seals, deer...
...and the life of tide pools, such as starfish and sea urchins.
