I Can’t Resist It

“Dear Boss, my apologies for being a bit late again this morning. I don’t think we should really call it ‘late’. It’s more like being ‘delayed’, delayed by the world because I can’t resist it. It took me 11 minutes to go through the woods to get these photos today. But I did double time on the back roads and made up time. I was at my desk at 9:05. That was efficient, right?”
A little more snow fell on us last night, more than what was predicted for Sunday night. Gotta love that weatherman! (Just don’t trust him to pick your stocks or anything that truly matters!) Still, less than an inch of snow fell. It was beautiful anyway. And the small amount allowed me to walk through it even though I was wearing Docker’s dress shoes and a business suit, not your traditional hiking gear! It’s a very quick walk through the woods from the road to the viewpoint at the top of the mountain. But, not too quick in dress shoes.
Below are several photos of the woods and the view from the top of Point Mountain. These are looking northwest over Port Murray, Washington and in the direction of Oxford. Note the clear spot in the middle of the penultimate (Oh! Such a sophisticated word!) photo. That is the spot I took the photos from yesterday. It’s like going back in time for a second, right? Time travelers!
