Entry 778 Seattle

I have already posted pictures from our trip to Seattle and the Space Needle.  However, I missed these few from our phones.

Entry 776 Road to Myrtle Creek

We had a nice drive from Washington to Myrtle Creek, Oregon.  I took some pictures, but they were mostly from my passenger seat while traveling down the road.  So, there are some that are not as good as they could be.

Entry 775 Grove of States

We made a stop at the Blalock Rest Area on our way to Myrtle Creek, and they had a Grove of the States, with the states trees.  I got most of them.  Enjoy the slideshow!

Entry 774 Space Needle

After worship in Seattle yesterday, we did our tourist bit.  The Space Needle and Pike's Market Place was as much as we were able to do in the short amount of time we had left.  But, it was wonderful!  The views from the top were just spectacular, and the pictures don't really do it justice.  I was surprised that they took the "to be expected" photo as we entered, and then actually sent it to our email address without any charge!  Enjoy the short slideshow!

Entry 773 Mt. St. Helens

We took a scenic drive to Mt. St. Helens today.  It was simply amazing to witness the power of God in His reshaping the earth's surface.  As I read the many pieces of information, viewed the pictures and videos, and listened to various park service personnel, I couldn't help but think of the arrogance of man, in his believing that we humans have any control over the natural functions of our planet!  The degree of the devastation in 1980, and then the subsequent rebirth of the land, so far surpasses anything we small humans can even dream of doing. Our pictures are a mixture from four different cameras.  The primary camera, the Nikon, died early on because I had failed to charge the battery the night before.  So, we used our old Sony and the two Samsung cell phones.  There are a few pictures from the quaint little restaurant where we enjoyed dinner, and a mural at a small town that boasted itself as the gateway to Mt. St. Helens.  Other than those, the pictures are varying views of the mountains and the surrounding terrain.  Enjoy the slideshow!
