September in the Mountains

Drove out the Mt. Baker hwy about an hour up the mountain to camp on the North Fork of the Nooksack river, just outside Glacier. Absolutely perfect weather, glorious sunset, almost-full moon. The light was perfect all evening and I couldn't put my camera down. I took 400 photos in 1 day! These are my favorites.

Bellingham Farmers Market

We've had a very late summer here in the Pacific NW, and here we are in mid- September with tomatoes, corn, peaches and peppers just arriving in the markets. We spent last night picking green beans, corn and pears, digging potatoes and carrots, and eating all of it out under the pear tree at my parents house. My camera was dead by that time, so no photos of 14 people crammed around a picnic table for you.

Up next: Camping!
