Cool pics Truth!! I want to plant some herb in those fields.. :smoke I love seeing the seasons change out that way. My buddy went to vermont and I was just blown away by the pics.

 

Coool Weezard! Those gecko are cool :wacko: I like the colors..we used to catch the jackson chameleons as kids for fun and let them go. I miss seeing banana leaf in the back yard :smoke The small river banana's are hard to beat!! so sweet tasting and make good lumpia when fried.

 

Beautiful pics trippin..Washington state looks beautiful. Then we got to seattle and i couldn't see shit out the window..mean cloud bank eh? I was on my way to alaska. I want to go back one day..only hear great things about it.

 

Nice bud!! mmmmm sweet skunk

Oh, the snow. I grew up in a lot of it, (east coast) and now never have it. (the west coast - 1/2 mile from the beach) I miss it for about a week/winter..then again, that's probably the amount of time, out of the year, I'd be willing to live in it ;) Beautiful pictures all.

I have to admit that the snow is pretty. I feel so lucky now that I can just sit in the house and look out at it.

These days, my "back yard" is the beach. I've lived here for nearly 9 years and will be quite sad when we leave. My boys were born here, and love the beach.

A sunny afternoon at the beach:

After a big storm the beaches are covered in foam. The tumultuousness of the big waves "churns" up all the organic matter in the water and makes foam out of it.

It is quite common to have pockets of rain on the coast. It will literally be raining in the front yard and not the back. (silly temperate rainforest that the Oregon Coast is) Where I was standing, it was dry, but a mile or two off shore it was pouring, but the sunset was poking through.

My kids (boys 7 & 2) at sunset.

At the Oregon Coast's coldest, we'll get freezing rain more than anything. In the nine years I've been here, only one have I seen snow on the coast highway (about 7 inches for 3 hours - then it all melted when it turned to rain). Now, four miles inland on top of the mountains is a different story...

Where are you in the EU - I'd love to change for a few weeks. You can stay at my place and I'll stay at yours! ;)

Our local flora - first up, Amanita mushrooms:

Most of our trees are covered in moss and ferns of some sort, this one has mushrooms to boot:

Finally a spider web of a spotted orb weaver, taken at night during a rain storm:

Thanks Mav,

 

This happens all the time up here in the foothills. I wish I could have gotten a pic of the family of Bobcats that hung out here this summer. Today we got hammered by a snowstorm. Quiet and Beautiful.

 

Have a great New Year
