Upside Down at Nolte

Today we took advantage of a mild winter day and went for a walk at Nolte State Park where the trees reflected perfectly in Deep Lake. So perfectly in fact I thought they looked even better upside down. How about you? For Becky’s SquareUp… Continue Reading “Upside Down at Nolte”

Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air

During this strange Covid year we’ve had to be hypervigilant about the very air we breathe, wearing masks and distancing ourselves to avoid transmitting the insidious virus to each other.

Surprised by Salmon on the Green River

Bellingham, Fairhaven and Whatcom Falls – a Getaway

Even though the skies are choked with haze and smoke here in the Pacific Northwest, we still managed a little getaway to celebrate my birthday. One can’t stop living, right? We drove north to Bellingham, home to Western Washington University and home to many… Continue Reading “Bellingham, Fairhaven and Whatcom Falls – a Getaway”
