A Day In the Life: Hiking Around Gibbs Lake… 12/2/20

Dawn crept out of the silky night with the subtlety of a jaguar stalking its prey in the deep shadows of a primordial forest. She exposed her presence by emitting an ethereal, almost imperceptible aura onto the landscape that blurred the shadowed outlines of structures and trees on the ridge to the East. The brilliant display of the Milky Way and sliver of new moon had long ago retreated to their opaque daytime hideaways. To the West, The Olympic Mountains stood as backlit sentinels guarding the lowlands they cradled in their outreaching intertwined arms.

The tendrils of a pre-dawn williwaw rustled the ethereal morning waters of Ludlow bay. The purple flamed clouds above seemed an alive, breathing entity awakening to the first rustlings of earthly creatures on the move below.

A day for a stroll; a stroll in the deep woods…

Lovely day out in nature.

And a memorable sunset when we arrived back at the boat.
