“Pink bows and gold stars tied around/hanging from light poles/trees along the streets to the west of the hardware store and Ken’s Market, hung there by Logan and Piper … to mark the route regularly walked by their uncle as he fought to beat the cancer that ultimately claimed his life earlier this week.”
Here are a few photos of their beautiful memorial:
We made our annual pilgrimage to Holden Village over Labor Day weekend. This year’s expedition included Steph, Kendall, Stella, Frances, Sandy, Elsie, and myself. The weather was perfect, if a bit on the cool side. We took several kid-friendly hikes, saw some bears, ate our share of good Holden bread, and met Senator Maria Cantwell, who was also staying at the village. All in all, a very fun weekend.
We really missed going last year. The village was closed due to forest fires in the vicinity. This was Elsie’s first trip, and she clearly loved being there. It was very fun for her to have Frances and Stella to play with. I managed to get a short video clip of the 3 girls hamming it up, so I’ll make a valid attempt to post that in the coming days. In the meantime, I am putting an album of photos on my photo gallery page. Be sure to check it out.
