  5. Gorgeous pictures Eileen! :)
    I love especially the one with the lake, by
    the reflection of the mountain the lake looks
    shaped like a heart :))
    Mirror Lake is just the right name for it :)

    Have a happy and beautiful Sunday!

  9. You're getting close to my neck of the woods, but I've never been to Mirror lake, I'll have to look it up. The reflections in it are so silvery and like a mirror. Mt. Hood is looking pretty too, but I can't look at the mountains up here without thinking, "Dormant volcano!" Life in the Ring of Fire. I grew up seeing lots of Indian Paintbrush flowers and also Bluebonnets and scads of other roadside beauties in Texas, but I don't think I've seen them wild up here.

    1. Hello Hannah, I did some research on the Indian Paintbrush and there are 17 native species seen in Oregon. I am always second guessing my id's and names. They were very pretty! Thanks for the comment, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

  13. Beautiful shots Eileen. I love the way the paintbrush flowers reach skywards and of course the colour. A striking plant. We have something similar in North Queensland but it is bigger and bolder.
