I love your photos, Gaelyn. We are having snow squalls today. I've shovelled the deck 3 times! Glad you like my cat on the rail. It was a gift.

So have you ever given consideration to, and weighed evidence for a young earth?

Interesting rock formations. Whenever you are around natural wonders like these it definitely humbles you.

Amazing--absolutely amazing. I am just astounded. (My 'A' words)

I always am awed by the sheer size of the rock that make up the mountains up here. I sometimes just stop and stare at them. and then to think (at least in these Cascades) that roads were cut through them. Not by the huge tools of today but pick and shovel days. All the A words put together. MB

Beyond words almost. I can only echo Small City Scenes' words. I'm endlessly fascinated by strata.

HI Gaelyn,
Catching up after a busy weekend. I really like the photo of Jeremy in the Canyon - it has a 3 dimensional effect. Also, that last of teeny you and the huge wall!

I'm trying to imagine a flood in this dry area and water rushing down this canyon. Probably doesn't happen much anymore.

I'm glad there's a person standing in the one photo t show how immense the canyon is. The power of wind and water is incredible.

ou have a wonderful passion for the outdoors. And you seem to have a wealth of knowledge. Is this something you've picked up over the years or have you studied formally or informally?

Love Titus Canyon! How often do you get to drive through the middle of a mountain? I hope to do it this February on our field trip.

I truly enjoyed all these photos of the rocks, minerals and the blue sky; makes me feel a little warmer somehow.
