Take a wildflower hike among the volcanic St. Helens landscape. While flowers on other mountains nestle against a verdant green backdrop, those on St. Helens often sprout from dead-looking gray soil made up of pumice and ash the volcano spewed out 37 years ago. But there are blooms aplenty. (📷 by Christy Karras)⠀

“Alexa, take our photo." Being named Alexa in a landscape dotted with an estimated 11 million plus Echo devices can be funny, and just as often, frustrating. As Alexa’s reach expands, the name seems to be on everyone’s lips. This year it’s forecast that 35.6 million Americans will use a stand-alone, voice-activated assistant device at least once a month, up 130 percent from 2016 — and Amazon’s Echo dominates that market. Bartender Alexa Philbeck works at Smarty Pants in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, and shares her first name with Amazon’s voice-activated device. She says the jokes have become so omnipresent that Philbeck briefly considered changing, or at least obscuring, her name. (📷 by @bettinahansen /⠀

Bento has collected four deer killed on the road this year. The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission changed state code to allow the salvage of elk and deer accidentally killed by vehicles.
