It’s a gray day outside, again! It was a beautiful drive from Missoula to Bozeman to Billings over the last few days, but this boring gray light makes for boring gray photos. I’m at a coffeeshop downtown this afternoon, catching my breath.Read more "Billings, MT"
…next to the Book Exchange, next to Jiffy Lube here in Missoula, MT. Lucy gets an oil change, and I get strawberry crepes with chocolate chips!Read more "Paul’s Pancake Parlor"
It’s always a fun visit to Eureka up here on the top of the Montana (which feels like the top of the world), fried chicken at the Frontier in Rexford with Danny, Kitten, Uncle Danny and Pete (who gave me a great iron skillet- thanks, Pete!) playing princess with Hayden and even getting to see […]Read more "Eureka, MT"
Left Spokane and Washington, drove through Coeur d’Alene and northern Idaho into Montana. Stopped at the Libby Dam and Lake Koocanusa for photos at twilight. Silent and still, no one else on the road for miles. Those are dog tracks, right?Read more "Libby, MT"
Made it to Spokane today after a gorgeous sunny drive in the company of big, fluffy fairytale clouds! I pulled over next to the rolling fields to take photos and stretch. With my tunes blaring out the open windows, I couldn’t help giggling thinking the passerbys must think I stopped to play music for the […]Read more "Spokane, WA"
A delicious and unexpected find!Read more "Country Boy’s BBQ in Cashmere, WA"
Headed north away from the interstate, blasting through a beautiful sunny Washington day, I stumbled on an interesting little town that has remade itself into a Bavarian Alps village: Leavenworth, WA. It was bizarre to drive around the corner and be met with a row of traditional chalet storefronts (even the bank), but it seems […]Read more "Leavenworth, WA"
I left the treehouse rejuvenated by a quiet night of painting and listening to the river rush by. Stopped at Snoqualmie Falls which was so huge that mist climbed up out of the canyon and slicked the observation deck, and drove over a very snowy Snoqualmie Pass. Then it was back out into the rolling […]Read more "Washington Drive"
I took advantage of the paths on the Tree House Point property to explore the moss covered underbrush. (The moss is as soft as it looks, furry and not at all slimy.) Even stopped for a rest in one of the ‘nests’ built down by the river.Read more "In the company of trees"
Driving out of Seattle, I stumbled on an amazing Bed and Breakfast called Tree House Point and was lucky enough to stay in an incredible tree house called the Temple of the Blue Moon perched 30 feet above the Raging River in a huge Sitka Spruce. This place is amazing, and all of the structures […]Read more "Treehouse"
