This is a super cool little farm on the backside of cougar mountain (i took the scenic route this morning)
The Tatoo shop near the corner store Waitin for the train...I need to turn right here..
The BIG HILL near renton
Time Warp.. not sure why this shot looks bent.. it may have something to do with the UFO that was flying around.
This is the Auburn Valley which is at risk this year due to the weakness of the Howard Hansen Dam (you keep hearing about on the news) I figured I better take pictures - its a really pretty area. Before it gets flooded and has to start over.
Supposedly the HH Dam is weak and not expected to hold through heavy rains this year. (i guess they have said this before) anyways they announced at the end of summerthat if it lets loose, parts of this valley will be under 10 feet of water which would SUPER SUCK .. for the thousands of people who have bought new homes here, or live here... (and you can no longer get flood insurance) and for me because the highway i use to get to work runs through here.. This end of the Valley is home to quite a few what my friend used to call "HooVille"'s (referencing the HOOVille in the grinch movie). aka housing developments with thousands of houses packed into a very small area.. with 3 feet in between houses. These things have been popping up all over the place for the last 10 years.. they make me groan every time I see a new one going up a perfect example of greed over common sense They are usually built at the end of a long two lane road, so once all the people move into their bright shiny (albeit tightly packed) new houses, that they paid a bunch of money for.. they are subjected to immediate gridlock because there's too many people for the ole 2 lane road.. The many HooVilles are mingled in with old farmsteads.
I love this old farm..
During the summer this is an awesome little flower farm where i stop and buy fresh flowers! (below) super cheap and super freshSee the UFO? below, upper right corner of photo.
I tried blowing this up to super size to see if it was a pigeon or sthing.. and it looks like a tin can with a spinning (blurred) propeller! (hum the theme to Twilight Zone here.)
