Cascades, the Current River
I saw this heart jump out of the rocks at the Cascades today, where I went for a hike with my husband this afternoon.
The amazing beauty that is at our doorstep in the great northwest ...
never ceases to amaze me.

I told you about the Cascades before; last time I showed you spring.
By some miracle, or simply determination to survive, the seed of a tiny wildflower found a home in a tiny crack of these immense, hard rocks.
Trees, too, plant themselves among the stones; askew is not a concern to their roots.
We walked upstream to this point. The nature in the photos above is found behind the rocks in the center of this photo, where the water drops off.
