REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

"The View From Up Here" (with apologies to Madge Bloom)

That particular phrase is just so apt for the view my husband, son and I had Saturday.  It's actually the third time DH and I have been to the top of 6000-ft Mt. Emily, looking down on the huge Grande Ronde Valley. But my choice of images has a double meaning, in that it's a photograph of our son photographing the "skeleton" tree so high up there!   In the valley, Mt. Harris, which is 5000 ft. high, looks very small; the snowy tops of Eagle Caps of the Wallowa Mountains beyond Mt. Harris range from 5000 to 10,000 feet in elevation.  So, Madge, I added just a bit to the phrase that is your blog title:  The View From Right Here.

That looks like a great spot. I imagine it looks so pretty up there, perched above the valley.

So beautiful! It always helps to have a person in a shot like this to show scale. Magnificent. ::)
