Having to sign a waiver form before entering an old dilapidated tunnel makes you think twice. While this tunnel on the Iron Horse trail does have a lot of fallen rocks and debris it was nothing a good bike lamp couldn’t handle. Don’t want to think about what “could” have happened…
Spent 6.5 hours on the Iron Horse trail yesterday (aka John Wayne trail) along the Yakima river in eastern Washington.
Nature is shaping this prickly cactus with sweet hearts.
A quail hen thought our flowerpot would make a perfect nest for her chicks. She is probably right since the 3’ pot puts her high above the ground away from scavengers.
Not quite thistles but sticky and sharp nevertheless.
A rusty nail in a 2 x 4, on top of a fence board. In the background we see a fuzzy birch tree in fall colors of yellow and green, against a deep blue sky.

Fall is upon us yet again. But it brings majestic beauty with maple leaves taking on bright colors of red, orange, green and yellow.
This picture was taken in Redmond, WA, a few years back.
