Week 20 Focus on Life - Looking Up

The prompt given to us this week, was Looking Up.  Where I am presently everything in the city is built on hills or cliffs so there are many opportunities to look up or down depending where you are.  My husband told me about a trail beside a lake where we could walk the dogs.  He said it was a lovely spot and he was right!

We climbed down these stairs to start our walk so I turned around and looked up.  
                                       Great perspective.  What is it with me and stairs?
                          Fancy homes built on Long Lake.  How much closer can you get?  
                                            So many trees formed canopies over the trail. 
                                       I like this one of my husband and Rosie on the trail.
  There are some old growth trees at least 300 ft. high. I wonder how long they have been there?  The eagles are soaring above right now and they are nesting in the tallest trees.   I would like to get their picture but I don't have my telephoto lens with me.

 I couldn't help myself - I spent a lot of time looking up to the top of the trees.  Such beauty.
