Wenatchee River Raging Thru the Tumwater Canyon


June 14, 2010. The result of days and days of incessant rain along with snow melt.... In 40 years of travelling thru the canyon I can't remember ever seeing the river like this.

Quick Trip to Eastern Washington

I went to Dryden for the day in early June...the 3rd...then finished the work I had to do on that side of the mountains later...on the 14th...after Dad's funeral. I was scheduled to go to Idaho the week of 14th, but I just couldn't bring myself to travel that far away from home so soon after losing Dad, so I shuffled my schedule and went to Chelan for a couple of days instead. That was easier for me...it's closer to home and is very familiar territory to me. Also I felt like if something came up suddenly back home I could hop in the car and be back in 3 hours. That wasn't likely to happen but it made me feel better to be closer to Mom and everyone else. The pictures I took sort of sum up how my heart felt - and still feels.... a little bit empty, a little bit lonely. a little bit distant.

New Life

We have a new addition to the hummingbird family this spring. They are now a family of three! One of these days I will get lucky and get all three in the same picture...
