Olympia pics

Here are a few pics of Olympia. I took most of them today. The pics of the Olympics are from last week just before dusk. Is anyone else posting their pics on panoramio.com so they can be view in Google Earth? Someone needs to teach pwright1 & Rainier Meadows how to use it!

Great pics! I love seeing The Olympics in there! I didn't know the Black Hills were so close to Olympia.

The Black Hills come right down into West Olympia. I can hop on a mountain bike and be in the Black Hills in 3 minutes. Also, if you ever have an hour to kill while in the Olympia area, the McLane Creek Trail off of Delphi Rd. is worth the trip. It is a nature trail in the state forest that crosses and meanders around a beaver pond (visible below, just to the left of Black Lake in the McLane Valley) and salmon stream.

Here are some pics of Capital Mall and the snow covered Black Hills from the other day. West Olympia is the major retail center of Thurston County. I took the pictures from the parking lot of the new promenade stores. The mall recently added a new movie theatre and the promenade stores on existing parking and an adjacent undeveloped, scotch broom infested lot.

Trail A may become the western terminus of our urban/rural trail system.

Cool pics. It looks like the water had a thin layer of ice over it?

Yep. The McLane Valley is slightly cooler than the rest of the area due to the cold air coming down off the Black Hills. It was in the 40s when I was out and about yesterday.
