I am including a few pictures from the great yard across from Chuck's house. These people are gardeners!
I should not have eaten the whole thing - but I did. It was almost bigger than my head.
Chuck's workshop is bigger than my house, I think. And full.
Another view. There are also rooms along the side for painting, etc.
Just for scale.
At Mt. Adams Lodge. We visited here with friends starting in 1992. It was called the Flying L Ranch most of that time.
This is a new patio off the main lodge porch.
No need to use a cart to move my luggage this time!
The view from my room as the sun went down.
And here is the view from my room come morning.
I stopped at Conboy Lake Wildlake Refuge the morning of my last day on the road. This was a spot my late wife particularly loved and where she wanted her ashes scattered.
There are usually dragonflies flitting around and turkey vultures overhead, but not this time.
This spot is always serene.
Parked at Conboy.
And then I suited back up, jumped aboard, and headed through Trout Lake, up Forest Road 23, through Packwood, and on through Mt. Rainier National Park, stopping only to have lunch with a friend in Enumclaw.
