White Christmas

Good grief it's cold. . . . and so much
snow. These photos were taken in our front
yard. Merry Christmas!

A Trip to Stonehenge

Traveling back to Idaho from Vancouver Washington
I drove on the Lewis & Clark Highway on the WA side
of the Columbia River instead of the more traveled
Highway 84 on the Oregon side. A little bit longer
but well worth it for the stop in Maryhill to see
the lifesize replica of Stonehenge - a memorial to
the men of Klickitat COunty who died in World War

The site doesn't appear to get many visitors which
seems a shame. It's secluded, yet less than a mile
from the highway. There are beautiful views and the
large stone fixtures are impressive. great for tiding
one over until a trip to England and the real Stonehenge
is possible.

I passed through Roslyn on the way to Sumner
WA last week and saw this famous sign.

I thought when I saw this on Northern Exposure
it had a moose in the middle instead of a camel
but maybe I am thinking of this sort of scene
(see below) which may have been in the opening
sequence for the show.
