A Gift by Jillian
Via Flickr:
I gave myself the gift of a couple of hours on the Methow today. I also forgot my net and every fish was a long, slow, wonder of tension and patience until I could bring them straight to hand and pull my fly from their mouths. This river is so beloved to me. My time on it is sacred.

Studhorse

Set in the remote Methow Valley, Studhorse responds to the clients’ desire to experience and engage the surrounding environment throughout all four seasons. Referencing the tradition of circling wagons, the buildings—four small, unattached structures—are scattered around a central courtyard and pool. The 20-acre site is nestled in the northern portion of the 60 mile long glacial valley and the buildings are arranged to frame carefully composed views of the surrounding Studhorse Ridge and Pearrygin Lake.

Some Fairy Tail things I need to know the official answer to
  • How Sting and Rogue met
  • How did they become best friends and how long did it take
  • Who the fuck gave all the Fairy Tail orphans the sex talk
  • How did that go??
  • How Yuri Dreyar died (because I LOVE HIM)
  • How similar are the dragon slayers to their respective dragon’s character/personality
  • How old was Zeref when he became immortal
  • How old are Natsu and Gajeel
  • Also what is the age gap between the true dragon slayers must be at least 7 years seeing as Sting and Rogue are the same age as Wendy then after Tenrou Island they look around the same age as Natsu and Gajeel
  • Also how did 5 year old’s learn enough Dragon Slayer magic to expand it and know all the secret arts??
  • And finally the most important question I have… WHERE ARE GAJEEL’S EYEBROWS!!?

Winter Fences

Photo taken on December 24th, 2011 in Mazama, Washington.  This is a gate near C’s parents’ cabin.  I loved the contrast of the red rust against the green paint.  And how this painted gate stands out in the snow white scenery.  I also really like gates and fences.  I guess I like how they provide a frame, a sense of distance or borders to a scene … 

anonymous asked:

do u think jen & mish have a list of "safe to tell" stories that they agreed on & thats why they tell each story like...50 times

i bet they have legitimate lists that they sat down together and wrote in seriousness.

unsafe to tell:

  1. that time we were filming a dean/cas scene and jared tried to fondle my balls and discovered that i was hard
  2. the sunset picture. the one with our foreheads knocking together with the sun setting between our faces. the one only four people on earth know about.
  3. resist the urge to answer “jensen’s ass” when asked “what’s the best part about working on supernatural?”
  4. ……..and obviously never mention how much i love the taste of jensen’s ass
  5. don’t accidentally call him by his nickname. you know the one.
  6. do NOT mention what happens on spa days.
  7. actually, don’t mention spa days period.
  8. that night in rome. THE night. never happened.
  9. the next time somebody asks me what it’s like to kiss jay, i will absolutely not lose my shit like i did the first time.
  10. do not accidentally start sentences with “one morning jay and i woke up” or “one night when jay and i were going to bed” or “when jay and i were on a date the other day”

safe to tell:

  1. how i make mish break on set but only the innocent flirty stuff, not the dirty stuff
  2. the innocent sunset pics
  3. how mish is one of my favorite people
  4. “dmitri” is allowed. other nicknames are not. you know the ones.
  5. family trips are fine, but leave out details about what happens after the kids go to bed
  6. the story of how we met
  7. how upset i was when jared pied mish in the face
  8. i am allowed to bring misha up six times per conversation and that’s IT.
  9. misha can talk about how annoying it is when i ask him to speak in his indiarussian accent. (he is not allowed to say in what setting said asking occurs.)
  10. shit man i don’t know, just bring up stuff that’s happened at past cons. most of that shit’s fine i guess.

The Methow

Photo taken on December 21st, 2011 in Mazama, Washington.  Last Wednesday, I was staying with C’s family in Mazama.  Over the past several years, I’ve grown to love this little part of Washington (“the Methow Valley”).  C grew up cross country skiing there in the winter and hiking, biking and playing there in the summer.  These are all things that I get to do now.  And I get to do it in this incredibly beautiful and relatively wild setting. I have always been very drawn to places; to setting; to scenery … And the Methow is one of those places I can’t help but marvel at …

There are so many photo ops in the Methow. I took a lot of photos during my stay but there were a lot of photos I didn’t get to take.  Some days, like last Wednesday, I went out with the intention of taking photos.  Other days, I just let the day unfold and took a photo here or there.  Now, I’m back home and reflecting on a really wonderful holiday spent with my new family (by marriage) in this very magical place.  I miss it, already. 

(Note: Mom and Dad, while I had a very happy Christmas with C’s family, I missed you both so much and I am really looking forward to sharing our family Christmas with C next year!).
