:iconclappingplz: WOW! :giggle: I kind of like the fact that a little bit of the fog lingers over the mountains. :nod: It makes it look like its...."floating" ^^; I can't think of the right way to describe it now but kind of like when you see things off in the distance and then it just disappears? :D

I love the Columbia. Somehow whenever I cross it from Oregon back into Washington that's the point I can breathe easy and feel like I'm home, even though I usually cross over in eastern WA and I grew up in western WA. :aww:

Oh I bet!! =) There's no feeling like being finally "home" again! THIS part of the Columbia is north of Davenport and Wilbur, WA. But I know exactly where you have crossed at, since I go that way all the time on my way back home to Spokane after visiting my son down in Mountain Home Air Force Base near Boise. :flagus:

Did you serve in the military too, or just your son?

I served for 21 years in the Air Force (tanker crew chief) and retired as a Master Sgt. in 2000. Landed a job with the airlines for 7 years and now with the FAA. My middle son went in a little over 6 years ago and is a Staff Sgt. :flagus:

My family has a long military tradition. My grandpa was a WWII bomber pilot, one of my uncles was a blackhawk pilot in Vietnam, another was on an aircraft carrier in Vietnam, I've got my brother who flies apaches, and I have a brother who's out of the Army now but used to fly recon drones. I had no desire to join the forces myself, but I've seen the sacrifices and I support our troops proudly. :aww:

Wow!! :salute::flagus: I salute them ALL in your family, but also I commend YOU for such great support. The military isn't for EVERYONE, but when I was deployed overseas during some of my military operations (Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the Azores and Italy) I so appreciated all the support all the civilians gave us. So thank you for that William! =)

Oh gee, is this what Washington state looks like in real life?! I want to be there in these open spaces. So blue, like aqua blue of the subtropics with the snow caps and the brown earth, a gorgeous window to your world.

Oh it does Audra!! Washington state is soooo incredibly diverse as far as topography. This is just one little area of it. You'll see all the different looking areas throughout my gallery - very tall mountain peaks (North Cascades), softly rolling farmland (The Palouse area), and thick forests (Mt. Spokane area). Spokane has absolutely gorgeous parks, as you can see in my portraits of Hannah, and of course old structures still standing like I'm sure you noticed with my old schoolhouse photos. This is quite a state, that's for sure! =)

My late husband's parent's were hippies and moved him up to the northern most part of Washington right before he joined the Army. He spoke of great fluctuating amber wheat fields. I have an aunt who owns a home in Seattle, but she's here in Ohio taking care of my Grandma, who always said she wanted me to see the beauty of Washington. she didn't want me to go to college there and instead choose Florida where I had an uncle as I"m prone to depression when raining.

Interesting how your life gets determined by which way you choose at each "Y" in the road of life, isn't it? It's fun to go backwards to figure out how you got where you are now. =D

Yes but only after it's over, that chapter! I once was asked to do a copyright only to find out my legal work was all along pertaining to, "Does my ass look fat from behind", in other words, it was a cosmic joke on me and I able to laugh at how clever the cosmos is for sure.

I was just made founder of a group this minute, Its called #SavePlanetEarth I'd love it if you would put some or all your photography in it, I never ran a group before but the guy who gave it to me has a lot of nude type groups no time to do this and people are confusing the two. I think I might be able to meet some great people like you doing this, Talk soon, love Audra.
