Almost summer

It is almost summer. (We thought it WAS summer, but thunderstorms, hail and the lake in our driveway in the last couple of days made us wonder.) So I chose the beginning of summer as the headbangers theme for my turn this week.

Alternately "Summer Solstice".

I admit I had something in mind when I chose the theme as we had just been on our first camping trip of the season, a brief overnight to check out our equipment, a good thing to do before a longer trip as we found that our air mattress had an eight inch gash.

So it's not quite solstice.

But that's okay because my pictures are not quite Stonehenge.

 The Stonehenge Memorial in Klikitat County overlooking the Columbia was built by Sam Hill as a memorial to the young men who of the county who lost their lives in the First World War.
 
On another trip a few years ago the predominant view to frame with the stones was Mt. Hood. Hood was hidden on this trip.
 


What have the other headbangers chosen for the beginning of summer or summer solstice images? Their links are in my sidebar.

My 1st thought was you had been to Stonehenge, not quite so old BUT real good shots kathy.

I like the angle of the shot and the angle of light in your header. I wonder if anyone will ever figure out exactly what Stonehenge was originally like or about.

Kathy: That was a surprising trip to almost Stonehenge. Great shots of the area of the Columbia River. What a great story.

The stones are a little better fitting or I would have been fooled - solstice and Stonehenge are two words that go together in my mind. Love the views that you got from that memorial!
