Someone placed them at the base of quite a few mile markers along Highway 200 (at least 13 and counting).

Day 126

Mike!

July 30th, 2010



Remember ol’ Norbert from way back in eastern Pennsylvania? I stayed with his family in the house where the guy tried to shoot his daughter back in the 30s. Well, I met his brother Mike this morning! Mike was heading home to Spokane when he spotted me walking down the highway, so he pulled over to say hi and make a contribution to my restaurant fund. Can you see the resemblance to Norbert? It was very apparent in person.

Day 126

If it ain’t baroque…

July 30th, 2010



I was filling up water bottles at this spring when I met Curtis, who just stopped by on his way back to Portland. He had been playing bass in a nearby baroque music festival. Perhaps we’ll run into him again on down the line…

A large nest

With one particularly large piece of wood protruding from it. You can see the mother (I guess) circling around.
