Snoqualmie Falls
I have this picture on my desktop, and sometimes I look at it, wishing I was there, someplace green and beautiful and peaceful. Far away. Not here.

And then I remember: I'm afraid of heights. Waterfalls actually make me a little squirrelly. And when I actually was there, I had my hands out, hovering, ready to snatch the children back from the edge if they wandered out too far. And I stayed in the middle of the lookout, anxious -- a little curious, too, but mostly anxious. Maybe I'd like it better from the bottom. Or maybe waterfalls are always better in pictures.
