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”

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!”

Green River, Rain or Shine! And Steelhead Sighting!

Don’t get me wrong, I prefer shine.  But regardless of the weather there’s nothing like a walk along the Green River to cure what ails you!  And yesterday we were rewarded with a Steelhead sighting – Washington’s State Fish – making it a perfect… Continue Reading “Green River, Rain or Shine!

Winter Walk at Nolte and the Green River Gorge

A Drive to Black Diamond and the Green River Gorge

Bob and I have been unloading some things by consigning them for sale at a collectible store in Black Diamond.  So once a month we make the drive to the old coal town to collect money from our sales,  hopefully greater than what we… Continue Reading “A Drive to Black Diamond and the Green River Gorge”

Flaming Geyser State Park, A Missing Flame and Steelhead in Training

In the middle of a rainy April we picked the sunniest day for a walk at Flaming Geyser State Park where instead of a flame we found a flowing river, luscious forest and steelhead in  training – who knew there was such a thing?… Continue Reading “Flaming Geyser State Park, A Missing Flame and Steelhead in Training”

Kanaskat-Palmer and the Green River

It’s camping season and sorry to say we are fresh out of campers. We sold our last one a year ago thinking we were done with hauling our sleeping quarters into the woods of the Pacific Northwest, and all over the country for that… Continue Reading “Kanaskat-Palmer and the Green River”
