Chikamin Peak and Gold Creek

Wednesday, June 2, 2010


Hey folks. Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend, if you live in a place where this last weekend was a long one. This is a picture of Chikamin Peak and Gold Creek. It’s right near Snoqualmie Pass in Washington State. Right on the other side of that row of trees is Gold Creek Pond. There’s a nice little path around the pond, and a cute little picnic area. The story behind it is that, when they were building the interstate (which was not too far behind me), what is now Gold Creek Pond was a huge gravel pit. When construction was complete, they turned it into the cute little picnic area that it is now. How nice of them.

That all being said, I would like this picture a lot more if that little bushy thing at the bottom of the frame wasn’t there. Sigh.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel XT, Tamron 28-300mm VC lens. 1/160s, f/8.0, ISO 100. Focal length: 28mm.

    Wow is that an awesome scenery. It really is a breathtaking site that the mountains and clouds don’t even look real. I like exploring nature, especially in the comforts of my own home. lol
