Roots and snags and fallen trees downstream… I guess this is one answer to where all these go when they whoosh by my home when the river is high.

Railroad Days Snoqualmie – Community Festival

Railroad Days is a long tradition in the Snoqualmie Valley and includes lots of events. This year’s was highlighted by train rides with a visiting steam engine brought by the Northwest Railway Museum. Here’s a collection of photos from what I saw on my day at the fair. If you’re interested in seeing the train in action there is video HERE and HERE. You can also see the inside of the train and more photos of the museum’s restoration projects at my slideshow page HERE.

Breathing Space 8-15-14aWe had a couple wildlife sightings lately. The photos aren’t the sharpest, but I hope you can still enjoy this gawky young elk and the sweet blacktail deer grazing along our riverside. (Deer photos taken by my husband, Marion).

Breathing Space – August 12/14

Today clouded up, and this evening a strange substance called rain began to fall. It’s funny how one can almost forget what it feels like when we live with it for so much of the year. But it’s been a remarkably dry summer so far, and I will appreciate every sunny day! Here’s a view across the Valley and down to the river toward the Northeast from our local bike trail that I took last week on one of those perfect summer evenings.
