A Colorful Day in Oregon

I love the bright orange and yellow of the Columbia Lilies against the beautiful green leaves.  But this one had a special surprise.

Look close to see the yellow spider that blends right in with the flower. 🙂

Tonight I had to make a choice between sunset and Mitt Romney’s speech.  So I watched the sunset through the trees and behind the window of our 5th wheel….and enjoyed his speech.

By the time Mitt was finished, this sand castle was flooded and there was just a little bit of color left in the western sky.

But I got to see the blue moon as it rose over the campground!

I could hear the high-pitched peeps of a flock of birds but I couldn’t see them.  Then their movement caught my eye against the reflection on the water.

And the color fades to greyscale….but the sound of the peeps and the waves are soothing.
