Madam, I'm Adam
Washington · USA
I know, I know...it's Adams, not Adam...but the palindrome doesn't work out the 'correct' way. In any case, this is the postcard-picture view at sunset from the northwest shore of Takhlakh Lake, a small, placid silver dollar nestled amongst greenbacks of mesmerizing old-growth forest. The Adams area of the Gifford Pinchot isn't one I've frequented very often owing to the distance and the fact that half the mountain lies inaccessible to the public on Yakima land, but after the beautiful hike up the Killen Creek Trail to lupine-filled Adams Creek Meadows just to the east of this lake, I'm aiming to remedy that in the future. A truly breathtaking area!
