This week's Photohunt theme is stripes. Another challenging theme. I was thinking about it today and came up with some pretty boring ideas. I was out driving and then the idea came to me... road stripes!
We visited Mt. St. Helens in July. It was a very hot afternoon when we arrived and the parking lot at Windy Ridge was jammed. So we decided to leave and return early the next morning. Plus the light would be better on the mountain.
We got up early - 7am - and headed up. We made it to the parking lot by 8am on Monday. It was almost empty! And a gorgeous day. We decided to walk up the stairs to the overlook. The morning was cool and it was wonderful. We hiked along the ridge for about an hour before we decided to head back to the camp. It was still deserted. Along the way back we stopped to take a picture of some wildflowers and I was able to capture this picture of the road stripes along the deserted road.
Have a great weekend.
