Sunday Sketches

Yesterday Maxine, Ray, and I hiked the Marmot Pass - Upper Big Quilcene in the Olympic Mountain Range in Washington. Amazing waterfalls in the first section, beautiful wildflower meadows in the second section, and scenic views of so many peaks from the top. It was a gruesome hike of 3,500 feet elevation in 5 miles, but worth every ache and pain.

The wildflowers were spectaular!

The view at the top of Marmot Pass was awesome!

I chose one of my favorite wildflowers to sketch: Wild Tiger Lily
