Born and raised in the logging town of Snoqualmie, Washington (the logging days in Snoqualmie are mostly in the past now). I currently reside in Issaquah, Washington. My Canon Rebel 450D was a Christmas gift that has kept on giving me hours and hours of pleasure. I recently aquired a Canon 5D Mark II and I am now learning to use this awesome instument. I hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!

    NICE timing Dale! Beautiful.

  • Gracious Sheryl! The middle fork of the Snoqualmie River leads straight into the heart of the Cascade Mountain range. There is a lifetime of images up there to capture, so many images needing a capture,so little time. BTW thanks for anouther fave Sheryl, you are too kind.
