01 Feb 17	As you drive along WA State Hwy 20 you have frequent opportunity to view one mountain after which many things have been named, including a road. Sauk Mountain is not one of our higher peaks, measuring a mere 5,541 feet above sea level, not even qualifying for what are considered as foothills in the Cascade Range. But it is a prominent point in its location and during the winter months rather pretty in its coat of white. As you can see from the shot there was a wee bit of weather about but nothing great, still, one takes what one can get. A couple of things caught my eye when I took the shot, the first being the open area between the two layers of trees as well as their relative snow cover, and the second what looks to be cleared areas usable by skiers, but try as I might I can't find any kind of lifts so I may just be imagining their function. This is a shot taken standing just off the highway and between the base of those trees and where I'm standing is a big pasture with about 15 head of cattle enjoying the morning air.<br />
