Oscar came out to visit me on my 2nd week out. We traveled even further east to see Dry Falls and Steamboat Rock.
We then traveled more south down the island for a lovely hike on the coast of Ebey's Landing, and back up north to see Erie Mount lookout.
Peshastin Pinnacles State Park.
I currently have three friends living in Spokane, so I took a 1 and 1/2 day trip out to see them. There was a 5 hour block when none of the three were available, so I toured Riverfront Park, Manito Park and Riverside State Park.
My family came into town that same weekend and were able to see me play Mother Abbess in Sound of Music and Mrs Pearce in My Fair Lady.
While there we did the Eagle Creek hike to multiple waterfalls. They weren't as fabulous as they could have been since it was late summer. I'd love to come back in the spring sometime.
And I took one final hike to lovely Lake Colchuck just 3 days before closing night.
On our way home from Leavenworth, Oscar and I decided to take the long way home via Winthrop and North Cascades National Park.
We had a gorgeous fall that year. We took advantage of it to do a lot of hiking. Our September/October hikes included the Heybrook Lookout, Rattlesnake Ledge, and Poo Poo Point.
And I finished up the year with a flight back to Utah to help my mom with her knee surgery and play Fruma Sarah in Fiddler on the Roof.
