Another iPhone photo of the mudcracks I found this weekend. Love finding stuff like this. Need to go back with the camera.

Osprey - looking for its next victim
Been a gorgeous autumn in the PNW. 6 years since I’ve lived here at this time of year.. Nice to see these colors again.
A beautiful sunrise in the North Cascades
Elk rutting season - here’s a photo I got last year of a big bull letting out a bugle. Great rack on him
Hard to come by water in the desert but always special when you do.
Nature is putting on a show. Get out and enjoy the fall colors before it’s too late.

Low tide at an estuary in California
Spent the birthday weekend exploring over a dozen magical alpine lakes. Despite the smoky skies it was still an awesome trip to one of my favorite areas in Washington
Mother ptarmigan with baby above an alpine lake in North Cascades National Park.. Always nice to get a wildlife shot that also includes the animal's natural habitat. There were 6 or 7 chicks in total and a curious one snuck up behind me while I took this photo.
Going through some old photos this week so here's a #tbt to a pristine sandstone pool I stumbled across in a remote section of southern Utah.
Another great Seafair weekend in Seattle. Thanks for the entertainment @usnavyblueangels
A female California sea lion emerges through the sea foam. I spent an hour watching a couple dozen sea lions feast on salmon at this estuary in Northern California. A few of them even took time off from hunting to ride some waves by the beach. Hoping to catch a few salmon myself this year, and maybe a couple waves while I'm at it.
