flakes drift from night sky
snow drift builds against my sill
I drift off to sleep

gone shopping

osprey circles high
sudden dive with talons splayed

Nature, naturally

When I think about the best parts of living in the Pacific Northwest portion of the United States, I think of the diversity of nature. With my home situated near Portland, Oregon, I am just hours away from beaches, forests, mountains and high desert (with the occasional urban area thrown in).

This week’s Daily Post photo challenge asks us to show images of where we live. I just happen to have a ton of photos 😉 , but I’ll narrow it down to a handful.

Oregon Coast

tour 1

The Pacific Ocean near Oceanside, Oregon

Forests

tour 4

Ochoco National Forest, Oregon

Mountains

tour 3

Mt. Saint Helens in Skamania County, Washington State. This volcano erupted most recently in 1980.

High Desert

tour 2

Painted Hills near Mitchell, Oregon

And of course, the city where I live, Vancouver, Washington

tour 5

Columbia River and the Vancouver, Washington river bank.
