Enough said? Despite the haze, you can still see that this is one spectacular place!
I’m back! I was gone for about 60 hours. I packed round 20 hours of driving and a lot of visiting with friends and family into that time. I am once again in Friday Harbor, but I am exhausted! Stay tuned for more ….

She’s Baaaaccckkk Hope you had a good time my friend. Wonderful picture. Looks very cold up there on that mountain top. Mt. Rainier? I’m not good with geography or mountains. At least I didn’t say the Alps or the Rockies? LOL. Glad you had a good time 🙂

Thom — you are apparently not good at reading either, because it says right below the photo what mountain it is! (I am back and I am just as mouthy as ever!)
And I told Thom you were north of the 49th
Boy do I feel dumb.
Billâ€™s last blog post..Happy Canada Day
Yeah, she is back!!!! and now I want to go skiing!! (it’s way too hot and sticky over here)
Marâ€™s last blog post..hot
That’s one fabulous photograph: don’t know which I like best, the mountain or that blue summer sky. I’m glad to hear you’re having such a wonderful time!
Susan — I like the warm summer sun. It is about 80F here today under that snowy mountain.
There’s a view, huh?
Doug — one of my favorites.
Nancy — when you get on the ferry at Anacortes, you are probably going to want to stand outside and watch where you’re going, but don’t forget to look back where you’ve been, or you will miss the view of Mt. Baker.
That is spectacular. Glad to have you back.
Nessaâ€™s last blog post..Oops!
Nessa — I think a few more days with my family might have been nice — but given that such wasn’t in the cards, it is good to be back.
My area is hilly, but not mountainous. It must be wonderful to wake up to that view.
Brenda — I can’t actually see this view from my window, but we have a few others just as spectacular.
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Quilly’s BACK!!! Oh, I MISSED you terble! Just terble! 60 hours is waaaaaaaaaaay too many to be without a Quilly fix! I’m sure amoeba tol’ you that!

Melliâ€™s last blog post..Thematic Photographic 56
Amoeba didn’t tell me 60 hours was too long to be without me, but he met me halfway between the apartment and the parking lot and gave me a hug and a kiss and ushered me inside for egg and toast and home fries for dinner. Then he listened to me babble about my trip and he dutifully llloked at all my pictures and said the right things. And I am not even going to tell you about the 10 or 12 phone calls during the 60 hours I was gone …..
only sixty hours? seemed longer than that…. no wonder you were miffed at the amount of verbage on my blog 🙂 Welcome back Quilly….
I read it all. In fact, I read everything everybody wrote while I was gone, but I didn’t comment on all of it or I would still be at it!
That is one beautiful view.
Dr. Johnâ€™s last blog post..One plus one equals one
Dr. John — and I have a sunset version, too! I’m saving it for later.
Mt. Baker is beautiful. I miss a beautiful view from my window. A storage unit not the same.
bettygramâ€™s last blog post..One + One = One
Betty — I agree. In Hawaii I see the neighbor’s garage. We used to have a great ocean view, but we exchanged the view for a better neighborhood.
That’s gorgeous! Glad you got to visit with friends and family.
Barbara H.â€™s last blog post..Happy Birthday, Grandma
Barb — I had a great time, thanks!
I’m going to sleep tonight and check back with you tomorrow. Glad you are back with us for a while…and that you got to catch up with family and friends. Night night.
amberstarâ€™s last blog post..What a Great Day
g’night! Oh wait. It’s morning here — and later there. Shouldn’t you be back by now! 😉
That photo reminds me of Canberra in Winter. Snow on the mountains, the lake… Wow, I’m almost homesick and I never thought I’d considered that city “home”.
Mumma — it is SUMMER here and there is snow on that mountain year round.
We’ve had temperatures in the eighties here as well in Belgium! Beautiful scenery,by the way!
I’m glad you’re back in the blogosphere!
Jientjeâ€™s last blog post..Friday’s Fave Five, the Holiday Edition
Jientje — it is good to be back, but I enjoyed every second of my time away. It’s nice to have you back, too.
Just love it! Giggling, cuz I knew exactly were you took that picture from 😉
Shellyâ€™s last blog post..My Little Party for One
Shelly, I almost forgot to look back over my shoulder and I would have missed it and another spectacular scene I’ll post in just a bit.
This is one of those times I sit here and say awwwwwhhhhhhhh.
Glad you had a great time!
Nicoleâ€™s last blog post..Cuckoos doing what cuckoos do
Nicole — the PAcific Northwest knows how to grow mountains!
The panoramic shot of the mountain is gorgeous, but I am sure there is nothing like seeing this in person! You are one lucky gal!
Church Ladyâ€™s last blog post..Happily Ever After
CL — thanks! I completely agree.
Gorgeous shot!! I hope you’ve enjoyed your time there. You’ve gone from one paradise to another. Very nice.
Jamie Dawnâ€™s last blog post..Adventures with Grandad #3
Jamie — this is a little bit of heaven, for sure. But it has mosquitoes to keep it from being perfect!
You got lucky you got such a clear view. Beautiful!
