Geology, Part 2

Another example of the billion+ years old mountains, also at Logan Pass so the elevation here is close to 7000 ft. One of the things I really loved about Glacier National Park is the rainbow of colored rocks visible not only in these old mountains but ...

Poplar Farm, Summer

Driving home from eastern Washington took us past the hybrid poplar farm in Boardman, Oregon.  Of course I had to stop again for an abstract summer version of this farm.  I took a very similar photo in early April when the leaves where a ligh...
