Chasing Sunsets

I’ve been obsessed with catching sunsets lately. I was trying to catch a good one from Crown Point off the Columbia River Highway and mostly just got some golden glow in the sky. Sometimes you can catch a good one, sometimes not, and sometimes you just have to go chasing sunsets! It’s all about being in the right place at the right time. From the golden glows to the brightest of pinks, here are a few of my favorites. How absolutely beautiful when God paints the skies in glorious colors for us to enjoy at the beginning and end of our days!

 

That one day, when I saw a cloud that looked like the angel of God painting the heavens in beautiful colors as she glided slowly across the skies...

Pittock Mansion

I recently went on a trip to the Pittock Mansion in Portland,Oregon. I didn’t go inside the mansion because it cost $10, but it’s free to walk around the grounds, so that’s exactly what I did. It has beautiful views of Portland’s skyline & ┬álovely flower gardens. Throughout the year they have 2 for 1 admission, so I’ll have to wait for one of those days and go back and visit with a friend another time. But there is still a lot of loveliness to see just walking around the grounds. Here are some photos of the lovely architecture, flowers and view on the mansion’s well manicured lawns.
