Pygmy Short Horned Lizard + Mantis religiosa

Saw these both about 15 minutes apart on High Valley Ranch
First time for each too! Early morning is the time to poke around.

72 mile ride to Lake Cle Elum and back - 94 degrees!

Fawn and Mama
(this piece of property was once owned by the founder of Black Angus)

tucked in the trees to the right is a Primate Sanctuary

Always a good time at The Brick

Almost dumped my can of fix a flat into this old beauty

Was worth riding the fat bike just for this terrain

All this sand and no one else on a fat bike

Lake Cle Elum did not disappoint

Right before leaving I took a dip to cool off!
Also met a 1977 state championship basketball player here who. . .
Was also a EHS seagull!!! What are the odds?

Never knew



Glad i packed extra water

Pristine Yakima River along the JWPT

The birds!

Ran out of water with 10 miles to go, so I ate 4 apples for the moisture.

Was an ethereal ride nearly all on gravel or sand!

No Flash indoors

This 50mm f/1.8 lens is a light vacuum! No flash, indoors, natural light?! 

So crisp.
