With exception to the steep walk required to reach the top of this neighborhood street, this is one of my favorite views.... it can be done by walking out the front door and up the hill (pant pant). At the top of the Hill - once we recover - the view is definitely worth it.
On a clear day, a really nice view of the central portion of the Cascade Mountain Range is there for eyes to see (on clear days of course).
The peak, here, is Mount Index (or Index Mountain) It rises to 5000 feet in elevation.
Viewed from a greater distance, this monolithic chunk of granite looks like an index tab in a library card file.file
I hope you like this ;-)
PS - I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR YOUR VERY KIND AND GENEROUS COMMENTS TO MY IMAGE THAT RECENTLY RECEIVED A SPOTLIGHT ;-)

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
