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

Saturday Night Sunset Chase

After another beautiful day on February 22 with Lennies over the Gorge and puffy white clouds in blue sky, I made an impulsive decision at sunset to drive north towards Glenwood. I started a little later than I should, and made it to the edge of Conboy Lake national wildlife refuge just at the peak of sunset on lenticular clouds over the valley. The sunset Panorama in the featured image is four vertical shots stitched in Photoshop. The blue-and-white shots are at this point just iPhone shots as I have not yet processed more then these two sunset shots from my big camera. After sunset I made a loop through Trout lake to see my brother Roger and sil Connie, and then a stop in Husum to read bedtime stories to some of my great nieces. What a great way to tie up my evening! Then on home to process a couple pictures and watch some of the Olympic skaters and skiers with my sister before helping her to bed.
