SPECIAL EDITION!! Photo Finish–The Brothers Through the Year!
The Brothers are a prominent set of peaks in the Olympic Mountains. The south peak (on the left) rises to 6,842 feet above sea level while the north peak (on the right) rises to 6,650 feet. The peaks are 22 miles from where I live in Silverdale. The Brothers hold the distinction of being one of the most prominent and recognizable peaks in the Olympics, and can easily be seen from Seattle on a clear day.
The front of my townhouse faces west, and I look out at this mountain every day. I’ve watched the ever-changing show sunlight and weather casts across these peaks. Here’s a look at The Brothers as I’ve seen them from my house (with one exception in location) throughout 2020!
I’m going to miss this view when I move to Tennessee next year. I don’t know if or when I’ll be back to the Pacific Northwest, but one of the benefits of having lived a military life is learning how to appreciate the moments one has in such amazing places. Since joining the Navy in 1997 through retirement and to the present day, I’ve lived on a golf course; had a condo overlooking a tropical bay with perfect turquoise water; been in the heart of the historic triangle of Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown; and now live with a mountain view. You can’t complain about that!
