Hello October!

October in the Pacific Northwest means peaceful walks along the Cedar River where trees turn the same color as the salmon running in the river. It won’t be long till I see them red and tattered fighting their way upstream. Dropping by for Photo… Continue Reading “Hello October!”

Happy Together from the Turtles of Coulon

Did you get the title? If not, you’re too young and that’s okay too! You can tell me in the comments. 😉 Yesterday on the first day of fall in between days of rain which is our new normal, we had a wonderful sunshiny… Continue Reading “Happy Together from the Turtles of Coulon”

Surprised by Salmon on the Green River

We were so happy to have rainfall in the Pacific Northwest this weekend and healthy air once again so we celebrated with a walk at Kanasket-Palmer State Park. Through the woods and down to the Green River we went, enjoying the wet and colorful… Continue Reading “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”

A Hike to the Waterfall in the Green River Gorge!

We finally did it – took the trail down to the Green River Gorge for a close up look at the waterfall. It was a first for me though not for my husband; he spent a lot of time here in his younger days,… Continue Reading “A Hike to the Waterfall in the Green River Gorge!”

Bicycling the Sammamish River Trail

Rainier left me breathless. And how… Continue Reading “At Paradise On Mt. Rainier with Hike to Myrtle Falls”

Quinault Rainforest – Olympic National Park

Did you know there are four temperate rainforests in Olympic National Park? They’re the Hoh, Quinault, Queets and Bogachiel. The most popular is the Hoh and that’s the one we’d visited on prior trips to the National Park. But the Quinault Rainforest is every… Continue Reading “Quinault Rainforest – Olympic National Park”

Cloudy Skies and The Summer that Wasn’t

While the rest of the country is burning up, here in the Pacific Northwest we continue to have cool temperatures. And wind. And rain. And always cloudy skies. Perhaps we’ll have no summer at all. Earlier this week I walked along the Cedar River… Continue Reading “Cloudy Skies and The Summer that Wasn’t”

Ebey’s Landing on Whidbey Island

Last month, in the middle of a rainy spring, we took advantage of a sunny day and headed to Whidbey Island for a first time visit to Ebey’s Landing. Don’t get me wrong – we’ve been to Washington’s largest island many times before. In… Continue Reading “Ebey’s Landing on Whidbey Island”
