Falcon Lake

We arrived at our southernmost destination, Falcon Lake, yesterday in sunshine and 77. It is a beautiful place. True to the rest of our journey, overnight a cold front moved in, the wind came up, and it rained. Today we are in the 40’s, it’s raining, and we’re wet and cold. That seems to be a theme for this winter. We bring Seattle weather whereever we go. Several people we’ve met have mentioned that.

There are lots of migratory birds here, deer, and native wildlife. As we sit in the car at the ranger station (the only wi-fi) and type this I am looking out at a feeding station with orioles, cardinals, quail, rodrunners, and other birds I don’t know. This morning a herd of deer crossed the road near our campsite. When the weather improves we hope to get some photos to post.

Due to the lack of connectivity posts will be fewer for a while.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    Hi Jean and Paul,

    Love your blog! Sounds like you are having a wonderful trip with or without the rain! Jean, thanks for the pic of the pastel painting “The White Rose.” It is beautiful and might be fun to try copying it someday.

    I have to ask, what happened between the grizzle and moose?

    Enjoy your trip!

      Hi Gwen,
      We are having a fine time and the rain has mostly stopped . . . a good thing too, as we now have solar power again.
