Great photos, dave. That open-ness is one of the my favorite things about fall. When the leaves finally fall here, we see the Olympic Mountain range through the bare branches. Mt. Townsend is about 25-30 miles away, but on a clear day in fall, we watch the rising sun turn the snowy peak every shade of pink.
I stopped by here late yesterday and found only a blank page. Just thought you might want to know.
