Glenwood, Washington is about to be swamped by 2000 bicyclists Sunday, September 6, and town will be buzzing all day with riders, booths, Native artist ready to share drawings, my photography, Indian Tacos, Music and more.  A Tent City is being set up to house the riders overnight with their own view of Mount Adams.  This is a Cycle Oregon event, with a side trip overnight into Washington before heading back south into Oregon, part of a 7 day ride mostly in Oregon.

I will be setting up a small booth, but mostly I want to get out and get photos of the event!

Here are a few new photos of the Glenwood area, including Conboy Lake Wildlife Refuge, some Sandhill Cranes,

Also a reminder, if you are local, stop by the Library Tuesday night Sept 9 for the open house 6:00-9:00 PM

Wandering through Fall with Friends at Conboy Wildlife Refuge

Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge is lovely any time of year, with widely changing terrain as a large area floods and dries out in cycles.  Large herds of Elk wander the refuge, and flocks of migrating birds make it an annual stop along the route.
