Beneath the Ridge

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Dennis Stewart

Located at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains just east of Seattle, dwells an awe inspiring place called Rattlesnake Ridge. After hiking in some very inclement wet weather, I came upon this beautiful scene seemingly straight out of a storybook. The lush and vibrant colors of the foliage taking center stage as the shadowy ridge loomed in the background providing a blanket of protection from the outside world.

Location: Northbend, Washington
