White-Flowered Rhododendron (Rhododendron albiflorum)
I sat on a rock at the trailhead watching Deborah drive off. Six A.M. was too early for me but Deborah had to catch a Seattle ferry. The thought of society behind me and in front of her left me melancholic. I would much prefer a shared path with my favorite hiking partner.
Marmot Pass was to be my days destination, a favorite location of mine.
I’m not really sure what to write so I will add some photos instead.
