The Sunday lunch that we had at the Trails End was very unique and most enjoyable.￼ The flights of beers and wines plus appetizers started things off. Great homemade comfort food sure filled us with the need for take home boxes too. We even found the beer we liked at Snoqualmie at this Snohomish restaurant! Bought a growler of it and a growler of Sangria Cider.
This shows the beginning of our set up for the Highway 40 yard coming this week. The sale is an annual event and it follows old US 40. Hundreds of folks set up and thousands shop along the route.
We’ll keep you posted as the week goes on. Sher and I always enjoy this event. We missed it last year due to Covid-19.
It is a beautiful day partly sunny pretty warm but nice in the shade with a slight breeze. Lots and lots of birds today should be a wonderful afternoon of birdwatching.￼￼

Quite a view from our RV site
We were traveling in South Dakota in October of 2018. Here is a look back…
Traveling on I-90 through South Dakota provides some remarkable scenery. In addition to the natural wonders of the state, one man-made marvel really stands out. Near Chamberlain at Exit 294 you’ll see the signs for a rest area with a Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. As you exit the interstate and drive up a decent slope you see a very large stainless steel sculpture with a geometric pattern. Then you soon realize that it is a star quilt being held by a beautiful Native American woman.
The star pattern
Note the person on the left for scale
This is the statue titled “Dignity of Earth and Sky”. The creation of South Dakota Artist Laureate Dale Claude Lamphere is a magnificent example of very large scale public art. The statue represents the courage and wisdom of the Lakota and Dakota people who come from the area. The star quilt pattern is traditionally used to honor people or peoples.
Had to grab a shot of this three wheel “art” piece, complete with a bike seat to finish the details. This is on display near a small town walking and biking trail. What do you think? Do you like it?
Sher and I saw this fire hydrant across the street from the Immaculate Conception Convent of the Third Order of the Sisters of St. Francis in Oldenburg, Indiana. See pictures and history of the convent at our post here.
Here’s another pic from the archives because, well, you know why…
Usually squirrels have bushier tails than this guy. He is still pretty cute, however.
Sher and I are not traveling now due to coronavirus, so we thought we’d share some of our BC pictures with you. (BC = before COVID-19)
We had just entered Yellowstone National Park from the East Entrance. As we saw Lake Yellowstone on the left we suddenly saw stopped traffic ahead. I thought maybe there was a crash. But no. Here came this magnificent bull bison just sauntering along, taking his time as if he owned the road. Wait! He did own the road. Quite a start to our Yellowstone adventure.
