We drove up to see Mount St Helen's but it was shrouded in heavy clouds. It was a pretty drive though and they had a neat movie at the Johnson Observatory. They had snow (dirty but cold) there and we hadn't brought coats.
Our first walk in Washington was in Vancouver along the Columbia River. It makes the Mississippi look small by comparison. There are so many great photos I had trouble deciding on which to show you.

It was 64 degrees, overcast and breezy. A great day for trip and a walk. We wandered along stopping at an Estate Sale, and looking through the Hardware store. Window shopped too. I liked this rocking swan.

Our club, at my request, hosted a Volksmarch at PK. The event was Sat & Sun so we went up on Friday to mark the trail. Didn't help that we'd never walked it before so we didn't really know where we were going. We started out on what we though... Read more

We went down to do a walking tour of Navasota. It was a beautiful day to be out walking. We've walked there before but we found new things to see. There were lots of nice old houses and about half of the walk was on a nice hike/bike trail sys... Read more
