|Meadows and Mountain|
16 x 12
After the sunrise painting, a nap is in order. I stop at a campground on my way up to Mt. Hood and rest for about an hour. Then it's on up to the area near Sahalie Falls. Just along the road is a colorful meadow, with a view of the mountain. I work my way through the shrubbery to a spot in the shade. Tiny berries decorate the bushes, blueberries, and huckleberries with their blue-black luster. Folks around here seem to call them all huckleberries, but they're all yummy, full of late summer sugars. The woods are cool and shaded, and surprisingly light on mosquitoes.
