O’ Christmas Tree

We made our trek into Forest Service Land today to get our tree. There’s not any snow to speak of in the mountains yet, so we were able to get quite high up today and made a great find. I have wanted a tall and skinny tree ever since we moved into this house. That happened this year, finally! Ten dollars and a little bit of fuel and hiking can get you a decent tree.

Mt. Rainier has been putting on quite the cloud show the past couple of days. It was a sign of the rain to come, which finally did this evening.

Ditto that! How amazing to live in such a gorgeous place. I think where I live is beautiful, but it doesn't jump out and wow you like that -- you have to look for the beauty.

How fun! We did that once when I was a teen, it was cool, going up in to the snowy mountains. They had to pull the tree up a hill w/the jeep, it was down a steep slope!
Equally fun to get such a TALL tree! Are we going to get to see the final, festive product?! :)

That's one skinkin' cool cloud!

Great mountain photos! Also love the one where your husband is barely seen through the trees.

Very beautiful shots of the mountatin!! That would be absolutely amazing to look out from your own yard and see that every day!! Truly a gift. Looks like a fun trip getting your tree too. And, it actually looked kind of dry on that road??? Could it possibly be???
