The Washington I love

This morning I woke up to freezing temps, a light layer of frost (and in some areas ice) and fog. It reminded me of the thing that I love the most about Western Washington. The crisp cold air that cleans the heart and soul when you walk out in the morning, the simple beauty of an almost winter morning, and the wonderful sight of Mt. Rainier towering over it all in his majestic beauty. This is the Washington that I love.

I don’t love freezing half to death unless I’m on a pair of skis about to tackle the side of a mountain but I do love the way this state looks when it puts on it’s winter coat. Much the same as I love the way the city proper looks in the summer with the ferries skating across the water, sun shining (yes believe it or not the sun does shine here from time to time) and the Space Needle in the background.

This is a beautiful city and state which is probably why I miss it so much when I’m gone. There is so much to see and do from hiking in the forest, to climbing mountains then skiing down them in the winter, There’s fishing and hunting (if that’s your thing), indoor sports, outdoor sports, tons of walking or bike riding trails. But best of all and the thing that I love the best…..in late fall, early winter there is the freshest crispest air…..*aaahhhhh* the Washington that I love.
