OK … after the mountains, how about a longer trip at lakeside? All this “testing” sounds like an excuse for getting on the road – do you think? Lake Roosevelt is always close, and the Evans campground is just $2.50. It’s huge, with very few campers, and has great WiFi. So, I can work too!
The lake is low … I guess they’re keeping it low for the winter runoff to come. This is a peaceful time though, and the temperature is mild. It’s going to be a clear evening – time for some steaming hot tea and a good book.
Cool lake breezes, sunsets without a lot of color, all pointing toward an evening of relaxation.
… served up on those cast iron skillets – very hot! Yum.
It’s sometimes hard to work with a view like this. We certainly enjoyed winter, and were amazed at the glorious beauty of that time of year … but this budding of spring is pretty astounding too! Will it last … remember, we are in Washington. Robert Frost noted in “Spring Pools”,
The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods -
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.
