Walking behind a waterfall is a very pleasant, if damp, experience.
It seemed like each waterfall we came to on the trail was more beautiful than the last.

As a perfect postscript to the trip, yesterday I received a surprise gift of art in the mail from Terry Grant. She had driven me past marionberry fields, and introduced me to marionberry pie, and now has she generously given me a permanent memento with this beautiful small art quilt, "Marionberries". I've been a fan of Terry's work for years, I really like her crisp representational style, and this is a great example of how well she designs and executes her ideas. I'm going to have this framed and hang it in my studio--thanks so very much, Terry!
The extra cool part is that when I opened the envelope, I recognized the work immediately, because I had followed its progress on her blog. (Scroll through her May archive here.)
