An Out Door

Missed last week’s post because we had an adventure visiting Lassen Volcano National Park in California.  It’s a beautiful rustic countryside but the temperatures can get extremely hot in the summer and snow in the winter.  Fortunately, we had some great weather and some nice clouds.  This post is about a “Field of Dreams” that we encountered just outside the Park when we headed to a thermo pond called boiling water.  There was, fortunately, a door to make this post legit in Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors blog and the rest is filler eye-candy that I hope you will enjoy.

I stopped our vehicle when I saw this field and I had to do some photography here but we discovered that butterflies also made their home here, too.  Someone expected guests and set up a set of chairs and a table so we felt welcomed and I saw the door on the side.

An old shed was next to the “open structure”.

There was a butterfly on the table but it flew away when I approached to take a photo.

But I found some butterflies nevertheless.

The field was beautiful with Lassen Peak in the far background with the clouds forming in the blue sky.

The old shed looked better from this perspective.

More butterflies and then it became apparent why the chairs were set out there.

The “Out Door” of the open structure, still in tact but I didn’t look inside.

And, to end this adventure two butterflies sharing a flower perch.

Thanks for visiting my post and thanks to Norm 2.0 for his creation of the Thursday Doors website.  For more posts and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.

Please note that my blog site is full and I will have to start a new site, undiscoverdimagesamongstus2 in the next post, so look for me there when I set it up.

  1. Oooh those old wood buildings and doors are nice. The chairs and table were a nice feature.

    Those blue butterflies are gorgeous!

    Funny we were both in Volcano country this past week. You here and me just down the road a piece in Mt Shasta. Great minds they say! 😀😀😀

    Hope to see you soon!

  2. Beautiful and peaceful area, Gordon! You were there at the right time for these butterflies. Is that the Volcano close to me? – we looked there at the house (when we were house hunting), but it was a bit too isolated for me – but it was gorgeous – on a high ridge.
    You probably overlooked Junieper (around no. 5 on link list) was hanging out at my other blog this week, but needed to get back today for my weekend posts and the All Seasons challenge on Sunday. (It’s the second post that was of this week – don’t want to change it now, since changing emails and passwords for both blogs takes some work – since I don’t know what I’m doing, lol).

    1. Thanks, Jesh! I’m not sure if Lassen is near you. I know there is a volcano near Pioneer but I didn’t check to which volcano; will probably have to check on it later. My WordPress maxed out so next post will be on a new WordPress account, same name but adding a numeral “2” to it. I also had to change the email as I didn’t want to create a new email account.

      1. Somehow your comment didn’t reach my blog – I just see it now (July & Sat.). I thought mine was almost maxed out, but now for 2 weeks the percentage I’ve used (84%) does not change, so it somehow has slowed down… strange!
        Okay, I hope to see you on your new blog!

  3. Gorgeous scenery! I really do like the open structure and the shed — the shed does look better at the angle with the stump in front of it — that’s just a lovely photo.
    Butterflies make everything even better, of course! 🙂

  4. All your photos are so beautiful! I’d be hard pressed to pick a favourite from among them! The 2nd photo with the old shed talks to me – the bluish-gray of the wood against all that rich green, but then again the 2 landscapes with the snowy mountains in the background – simply gorgeous!

  5. These images are amazing, Gordon. I can actually feel the sun, smell the grass and I want to squint to see the butterflies! Just beautiful. You get a huge “Sighhhh….” from here. 😀
