Washington State, by crazyaboutnature

This is the Tatoosh Range in Washington (If you didnt already know that). I sat in this meadow for about an hour just watching. Watching the sky transform, watching the wildlife abound, watching the beauty of this amazing planet that we are given to spend our days. These are the moments I cling to when life gets tough. This stuff keeps me grounded.
