I am so glad to report that I located my memory card reader for my camera!! How smart I was to slip it in my camera bag... I do NOT remember doing that, especially since it was in the wrong place. Someone must have "helped" me out - and it worked!! On to the story...
When my folks drove home this past month, they took a "short-cut" that turned out to be longer than expected (Atlases do not always show all the twists and turns that abound on mountain roads like the turns might be shown in a flat-lander state!) But, their effort to try a scenic short route was rewarded with an unexpected scene that they recommended we see, too!
And what a scene it was!
This is as we got closet to the "rock pile" in the above photo...
The girls insisted it was a castle!!
A storm was brewing and the girls were nervous nellies about the lightening in the distance, so we had to hurry... and I didn't take NEAR as many pictures as I would have liked to.
There were large viewing windows and many small holes to look through that showed mountain peaks with their names... SO COOL! I would love to go back through on a beautiful clear blue sky kind of day to really look them over.
Two of the Three Sisters Peaks "North Sister" and "Middle Sister"... Blossom thinks the third sister died.
At the top of the observation tower is this dial of sorts that points to and names the peaks in the distance.
Later, as we continued on our journey, we were treated with this spectacular sunset!! As we drove out of a fire singed forest, the sky gave the illusion that the fire was still raging in the distance. Breathtaking.
