After completely missing the fantastic alpine autumn colors up north a few weeks back due to my travel schedule, I took advantage of the good weather over the weekend to explore some new spots for autumn foliage. Some much needed wet weather even left a nice coating of fresh snow on the mountains.

Mount Adams, one of the highest mountains in the Pacific Northwest, towers over a grove of colorful aspen trees in southern Washington State on a sunny autumn day.

Just returned from a couple weeks in Ecuador and the Galapagos. Hardly any tourists there at the moment. Although not my first time, just the escape needed from all of the craziness of the past 18-plus months!

While not the most powerful storm we saw, the fact that we watched this storm form almost directly overhead right at sunset was pretty amazing.

Perhaps not the most exciting sunrise, but it was nice to spend time on the mountain and still find patches of flowers in excellent shape. These had a very fine ice coating on them from a cold night.

Sunrise lights up the upper slopes of Mount Rainier as seen from a subalpine wildflower meadow in full bloom, Mount Rainier National Park, Washington, USA.

This summer I discovered beautiful sunsets most often occur during or just after powerful thunderstorms. This was no exception.
