Washington Part One: Laura's House and Mossy Forrest Majesty

I flew to Seattle on the very last day of March to visit my best girl/soul mate Laura, who lives in the mountains extry close to Canada.  We went on a few adventures, and while I did not take infinity of pictures, I have enough that I'm going to split it into two posts.  Enjoy!

We spent a few hours in Seattle before heading to the mountainous boonies.  We went to Pike's Place, and took this picture.  It's the only one we took in the city!


Laura lives in a cute little a-frame house.  Her neighbors are technically very close, but the forrest-y backyard made it feel cozy and secluded.  If you tune out the occasional sound of gunshots (?) and the sounds of the highway, a person (me) can pretend they're in their own sweet cabin in the middle of nowhere.  



The ground was covered in moss and itty bitty pine cones.  They were so cute I wanted to glue some googly eyes on a couple so I could adopt them and sew them tiny outfits.



Laura also revealed to me the untold wonders of the mossy forrest.




We especially liked all the giant shroomy fungus prizes growing out of fallen trees.




Red with Laura's paw for size reference.


This shot is better at revealing its supreme awesomeness.


Another size huge black one.  We should have put a size marker in this one.


Surprise candid shot of Laura, whom I think looks glorious in the forrest.  I have always thought she looked awesome in green, so it makes perfect sense.  Also, sitting on that fluffy ground covering fern looking foliage (uuhhh, whatever) was a rare soft treat.  The world smelled like mushrooms.
