Escaping to the Woods

Maxwell's BD and Lake Easton 113


‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ and I escaped to Lake Easton State Park, here in Washington, for a few days this week.

I had a fabulous view from my campsite!

I loved all the trees in the site.

I enjoyed lovely long walks, every morning on great walking trails.

There were stunning views, as I walked around the lake.

There were bridges and even a tunnel, built into the rock.

I had a lot of fun with taking these pictures because most tunnel pictures are just too dark but here the sun was in a perfect spot.

There was lots of flora and fauna, too.

Here is the view of the State Park from across Lake Easton.  I believe those are the Cabinet Mountains in the background.

It just doesn’t get any better than this.  I loved this walk so much I did it three days in a row.

Or you can just slip right into this chair and enjoy the view….



  1. Okay ... now I'm just as green as those trees with envy. Was just thinking this morning when I got up that there is no place in this country I would rather live than in Washington State.

  2. Oh my, each and every picture is like a postcard. So beautiful and peaceful. I know you enjoyed it and wish I could go there right this minute! Have a good weekend.

  3. Aw! Looks like a peaceful and refreshing get away for you! ♥

  4. It looks heavenly and I'm so happy you shared it with us. I'm so envious especially since we are in a heat wave here in Arizona.

  5. beautiful photos Karen(:)
    you travel with my dear friend Maren.. sometimes..

  6. How come some travel site or travel magazine hasn't snapped you up to do monthly travel stories on glamping?

  7. What beautiful country..You're so lucky..Love the tunnel..Did you go by yourself? Great job with the pictures..

  8. I loved the pictures, all of them, from the moss and lichen closeup to the amazing vistas of mountains and water. Your trip looks truly beautiful and peaceful.

  9. Looks like a beautiful park--we might have to venture there soon. Did you go in the middle of the week--it looks like there weren't many campers. We went to a Canyon Creek campground near here and it filled up by Thursday night. We are retired so we usually go during the week to avoid a crowded campground and this was the first time it was so busy during the week. JoAnn
