Cougs look to go to 10-1 today

and the crowd goes wild

The Washington State University Cougars currently lead the Pac-12. They are tough at home and finish out the regular season with two at home. However, their opponents in those final two games are a couple of the better football teams in the Pac-12–Arizona today and Washington next week.

Columbia River Gorge from The Gorge Amphitheatre

Last light of day

On the second day of this year’s Labor Dave Weekend some in my camping group discovered that you upgrade regular tickets to reserved lawn seats next to the sound board. I did on day three. Along with the better seat, the upgrade includes admission into the Cliff House. The Cliff House (stage right, house left) was awesome for a number of reasons. You can chill on leather chairs or couches (in the shade) instead of sitting on the grass/rocks elsewhere in the hot sun while waiting. No lines for food, drinks, and restrooms (with flush toilets!). Best of all was the unobstructed view at sunset, pictured above.

Walking the Walla Walla dog

Walking the dog

Just over a year ago this happened. Sadly, I don’t think I will ever have a reason to head to this part of Washington again. I would like to see Palouse Falls (especially with a sky like this) someday though.

Walla Walla Walkin

I had hours to kill in Walla Walla last Friday. I was thinking about going to Palouse Falls, but it rained all morning, and I didn’t want to drive over 3 hours round trip with a chance of not seeing the falls due to rain. When things cleared up I opted for a shorter drive and walk (from Rooks Park to Bennington Lake where this photo was taken). The sky was really pretty the entire time. In some ways I was regretting not seeing Palouse Falls with such a spectacular sky, but it was too late at that point to make the trip. Next time…

Ellie is still figuring out where she will be in the fall. Today she is checking out Whitman. Ryan is already a Duck. Maybe today’s photo represents my kids’ future?

Spokane’s Ruby2

Steam Plant from the Ruby2 Hotel (Spokane, Washington)

A hundred years ago Spokane’s iconic smoke stacks provided power to hundreds of buildings downtown. Now they are home to the Steam Plant Brewing Co. From our hotel room the colorfully lit symbols of days gone by were lovely.
