New Year's Eve

Okay, blog neglected for over two months and even Katney's Kaboodle gone to just a couple of posts a week. This will change as of tomorrow. I will post something here daily for 2013!!! I declare!!!It may sometimes be archive and sometimes just a pic of the yard, but something new each day.

I will also revive Reflecting Daily, though it may become Reflecting Occasionally.

New Year's Resolution.

You know how those go.

So here is what happened. The months at the SCCA are on hold as a heart issue took precedence. Shortly I wrote that we would be in Seattle, a mild heart attack sent the oncologists to the background and the cardiologists to the forefront. So we remain home. And today we took an adventure to Maryhill Museum, where we saw this bird in flight over the Columbia River. The land you see in the background is Oregon.

I'll be baaaaaack!

I did not totally abandon the blog these last few weeks, but have not been out and about with the camera, have had computer video card problems, and  have been crazy busy a lot. Next week we go to Seattle where himself will spend a great deal of time at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance for the next few months. Let's see what I can find in my off time. I promise--while there--to post an image a day from that very day. Well, except when I don't.

Irrigation is the lifeblood

Without irrigation our valley would be a desert. Note the patchwork of crops beyond. The Rattlesnake Hills are in the distance here, taken looking the opposite direction from yesterday's view. No need to explain that name...

viewed through the vineyard

The wind machine protects the buds from frost in early spring by circulating the air, mixing warmer air from above with the cold air that would otherwise settle near the ground and damage the crop. The Horse Heaven Hills are in the distance, so named because they were difficult to farm in the early years, but heaven for horses.

To the top

Same location as yesterday, this trail loops around near the top of the cindercone at Newberry Volcanic National Monument in Central Oregon.

trail closed

That's what the sign says, though there was too much reflection for it to show. No wonder, since its about a 500 foot drop beyond it.
