This new archway--well, new to us who have been here for over 35 years, welcomes us to our town. I actually took this picture before it was completed.
This is like a welcome home when we go on a cruise. Seattle is our port of departure and return.
This is the view as we come back home into the Yakima Valley when we have been visiting relatives in the Southwest. We finish up over Satus Pass and come down here into Toppenish. Not much farther to be home. I had to go back and check the photo to make sure that this was an accurate description. It could have been coming down from Bickleton, or over the Horse Heavens from Paterson, or very similar to the view down into the Valley coming from Chinook or White Passes, or down from Ellensburg over Manashtash Ridge. No matter which, once we come over a ridge and see the Valley, we know we are almost home.
A simple view--nothing spectacular. But it's home.
Our new headbanger Christine gave us this week's header theme. You can find her link on my sidebar, as well as links to the blogs of the other headbangers.
