fields of wildflowers
hot asphalt parking lot
drifts of snow

— A snapshot from my trip to Paradise on Mount Rainier. It was odd and beautiful. You can drive up to this location. You may have heard that “they paved Paradise and put up a parking lot“. Joni Mitchell was singing about this same parking lot. Once I ventured off to walk, there were beautiful yellow wildflowers next to snow drifts so high they almost obscured the tops of the signs marking the trails. It was a memorable day, and I look forward to another trip some day.
