Pioneer Harvest, and A great hike

Tuesday, October 08, 2019

This weekend, the High Desert Museum featured a harvest festival at the replica pioneer farm. I enjoyed visiting, and watching the re-enactors educating the public.

The little pioneer girl enlisted other children to dig up the potatoes in her garden.

The farm wife was showing the little girl how to churn butter.

The older farmer was pressing cider

And the blacksmith was making hinges.

The kids were enthralled watching and helping out. However, most of them had a hard time swallowing the samples of pickled eggs!

Of course I also enjoyed visiting my favorite exhibits, like the walk through Oregon history

And the animals and landscape

Today, I returned to hike at Sparks lake with my friend Moon. This is the same trail that I fell on a month ago; this time I managed to stay upright for the entire hike! Moon had never hiked here before.

It was a warm day today, and the fresh snow on the mountain tops had started to melt.

You can probably tell from the photos that Moon loved the hike. She just lit up with smiles. After work, she invited me to her home for yoga and home cooked Chinese food, very healthy and tasty.
