Life at the Oregon Coast

Low tide at the Oregon coast reveals a small cascade. Sunlight reflects on the water as the morning fog burns off. Two seagulls take turns at a fish breakfast…

Old Flame

From the archives… The remains of a minor steam eruption at SW Washington’s Mt. St. Helens.
Dateline: October 27, 2004 in the vicinity of Coldwater Ridge volcano observatory, at closing time (note brake lights of the last two cars leaving the observatory parking lot.)
It looks peaceful from here, but it didn’t feel that way at the [...]

Jeremiah

It’s not easy being green… and keep body and soul together –especially those hind legs; a delicacy to some. Keeping half one’s body under water could, in theory, help. But then there is that bullhorn of a mating call that blows one’s cover to bits…
