A Journal through the American West, Part 2

“Take me back to the Black Hills, the Black Hills of Dakota,” sang Doris Day as Calamity Jane, and ever since I wanted to see those Black Hills. And so I did, some years ago, when we packed our camper and headed east from…

Palm Beauty

I’m from the Pacific Northwest and love the cool climate and the dark evergreen forests of giant Douglas Firs. But I have to admit that the Palm trees of southern California have a majestic beauty of their own, surviving and rising above temperatures of…

Silver Falls at Mt Rainier

The Colors and Solitude of Long Beach

Long Beach bills itself as the longest beach in the world.  Maybe that’s a stretch – no pun intended. Still at 28 miles, it ranks #3 on the list of longest US beaches and #8 in the world. And if you add in some…

What do you do on a rainy day in Seattle?  Go see the airplanes at The Museum of Flight.  We did!  They were prolific! According to their website,  “The Museum of Flight is the largest independent, non-profit air and space museum in the world! …
