Cousin Camp Annual Chess Tournament

Anthony (left) won this game. He had some rather creative moves. Nate is beyond patient with his younger cousins. The annual cousin camp chess games are informal. (This year a bracket was actually drawn up but never used.)

Coyote in city park?

We debated whether it was a coyote or a dog. This is a city sponsored riparian bird preserve and park.  Dogs supposed to be on leash--but of course dogs get off leash from time to time. And coyotes are dogs. What do you think?

Alpaca

Such cute faces. I wonder if they spit like llamas and camels do.

Devil's Backbone

This is a "fin" on the rim of the Crater Lake caldera. Harder volcanic rock that did not erode away when Mt. Mazama collapsed in on itself.

Pine Marten

A special treat during a wildflower hike.

Because of wildfires in southwestern Oregon, the visibility was hazy during much of our visit.

Looking for America

There is something about county courthouses in small rural counties that says America as much as apple pie and Mom. When I stopped to take the picture, Simon and Garfunkel were singing that they had "come to look for America." When I mentioned that in my "I'm home safe" e-mail to the group I spent the weekend with, one of them responded "Simon and Garfunkel were playing in Dayton? How did we miss them?"
