Quest for dirt

This photo is deceiving...at least to me.I think it looks like a tumultuous sea under a layer of fog but it is just a little creek feed by our geothermal wonders. At lunch today we went on a quest for dirt. It is very hard to come by around here this time of year and Rugby doesn't believe we will ever see dirt. We found a little.
The steam freezes on the brush and creates amazing formations.
The clumps of "snowflowers" turn the ugly dead twigs into something wintery wonderful.
Rugby was more interested in the flock of geese nearby,which I could not get a shot of because she kept tangling me up in her leash.
She did get a chance to get very muddy which was great fun until it was time to get back in the car. ;-)

Here is a shot looking back towards home, I live just over the hill at the base of that fabulous mountain.
Sure is a beautiful day.- J

What lovely mountains to live by! Beautiful. I've been telling Husband we need to get up to Mt. Hood. It's been a few years or more like almost five! It's only about 1 1/2 hrs. away.

Hope you're having a great week!
