Above the Mole's Garden

After we left the Mole's Garden that I posted about yesterday, the gardens of the earth and sky were even more pleasing to the eye.
The brown shed-like structure in the bottom right corner above is a snow shed big enough for a train to go under. They were used (& often destroyed) in drifting snow & avalanche prone areas to keep the tracks open for business. This one now makes for a good geocache landmark.

Oooo that scenery.....reminds me so much of our visit to BC and trips through the mountains. That tunnel looks a bit scary!

My favourite place in the USA is Washington State. I have friends there, I am coming to visit again in November. That scenery reminds me why. Wonderful!

Oh what wonderful pictures, I can almost smell the crisp clean air! In England when we get so many days with dull, low grey cloud I'll pop back to your pictures and pretend I'm on your mountain! SWD
