May 1976 — I wasn’t invited along (but that’s okay!) when my mom and dad took this road trip up to central Washington State. Mom had recently graduated from California State University, Sacramento, and this getaway to her favorite place on Earth was her well-deserved reward. Leavenworth sits in the midst of the Cascade range, and there’s plenty of beautiful […]
My entry for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week.
It was only about four years ago that I first visited the California State Railroad Museum. It really is a great place to explore, and after watching this episode of California’s Golden Parks, I think I’m about due for another visit.

Huell is very lucky to get an invitation to celebrate the holiday with a wonderful family — and he’s on hand to watch as quite a lot of truly mouthwatering food is being prepared for the event. In […]
