Imagine you’ve just summited the 9,000’ Broken Top in Oregon’s Cascade Range. The sun is out. There’s a gigantic red caterpillar. Save yourself the expense and the exertion of the climb. Instead, gaze and gaze, as Wordsworth wrote, at our Broken Top. How the light does strike the standards! And delightful the way shadows play upon them, with light coming through. Everything about the hypnotic falls is soft. Easy flowing colors - white to lavender, watery appearing, similar to shaded snow. Beards could not be more conspicuous. Is the caterpillar blocking your way? Was he there when you arrived? Is he real? Who’ll believe you, that you saw it? Nobody will believe you when you include the red caterpillar in the tale of your ascent. With our Broken Top, no convincing is necessary.
