I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

places to hide
scents to get lost in
when the wind turns the tide

Looking west is Mt Hood standing tall
The terrain changes dramatically
east of the Cascades
no trees
