Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

This is the view we were treated to as we neared the top of Mount Baker in Washington State. It was such a beautiful scene with the nearby view of the flowers and lake, contrasted by the far away snow-capped mountains. Also near, but not shown in the photo, were hundreds of other photographers focusing on the exact same shot!  

As the road neared the top of the mountain, it became very twisty-turny and had some steep dropoffs. Naturally, we were shocked and quite amused when we came across a man happily riding his unicycle near the edge of the road!

    And on a side note – downhill on a unicycle? Yikes!
