The Olympics are out! The Olympics are out!

The Olympic Mountains are very spectacular this morning after being hidden during days of rain and snow.  This photo taken a half block from my mother-in-law's home in Shoreline.

Note:  It looks like the mountains are being reflected in a lake but actually those "reflections" are clouds.  Puget Sound is towards the bottom of the photo amongst the trees!!

Another highlight today is garbage pick-up day after several weeks of non-pick-up due to the Big Snow of 2008.


  1. For several years, I accompanied my ancient Mom on flights from Phoenix to Victoria and back each summer. Almost always, Ranier was visible from the air ... on the great days, I could see it looming over Sea-Tac...

  2. Wow, what a view!
    Will you be temporarily changing the name of your blog to Walking Shoreline?
    Happy New Year btw.

  3. A thrilling sight to start your adventure!

  4. Gorgeous. Ah, makes my heart pull a little. Happy New Year.

  5. Awesome mountains! You're gonna love it.
