Resting Spot

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 15 August 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

Part way up, there's a nice spot to catch your breath and enjoy the view. Indian Paintbrush and Balsamroot are growing there and the Columbia River is far below. The hills in front of you are in Oregon, U.S.A.

A great place to take a rest. The landscape is beautiful and spacious.
