More Light

pan7

Climbed up Tired Creek Trail to Polallie Ridge. This is one of my favorite viewpoints on the Cle Elum Ranger District, and well worth the perspiration to make the ascent. One of those rare days I can’t believe I get paid to do what I do. No people, only one illegal fire ring and a small pocketful of trash. Shirtsleeve weather. Quiet except for the tick-tick sound of leaves dropping and a few resident birds muttering to themselves. The crunch of snow under my boots. A little bit of drainage digging and brush cutting. And oh, that intoxicating light and air!
