Jan 31, 2010 - Northwest Trek

Today, Debi went to Northwest Trek and met up with her Bootcamp Buddy, Dawn. Debi & Dawn were both between their Junior & Senior years of High School, when they attended Bootcamp together in Cape May, NJ in 1978. Last time they saw each other was at Disney World, in Florida, back in 1981, so it was a fun reunion for them. Northwest Trek is a wildlife reserve, where the humans are more in the “cage” and the animals roam free. During the tram ride, wild Bison, Long Horn Sheep, Moose, Black-tailed Deer, and more were just out of reach. Very cool.

Oct 4, 2009 - Northwest Trek Elk Bugeling Tour

This morning we had to be at the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park by 8:00 AM for the Elk Bugeling Tour. This is a special tour for adults only. We arrived with plenty of time to spare even though we did get a little lost on the way. Northwest Trek is a 723-acre park and has a little bit of everything: lakes, trails, meadows and plenty of animals. It is home to more than 200 North American animals. Dr. David and Connie Hellyer donated the land to create the park to display North American wildlife in their natural environments. A normal tram...

Our 2009 Travels

May 13, 2009 - May 11th, 12th & 13th

May 12, 2009 Tacoma WA celebrates its local artist in a big way. Internationally reknown Dale Chihuly’s glass is displayed at Union Train Station (which has been converted to a Court House) and on the ceiling of a pedestrian bridge which leads to the Glass Museum. Wow! May 13, 2009 Mt Rainier is rarely visible this time of year. This morning we lucked out and saw the 14k heights covered with snow. We drove up to 5400 ft before roads were closed and by then active snow obstructed all views. On one hand, snow banks towering overhead are...

May 18, 2008 - Eatonville, (Mt Rainier)

We got up early this morning and left for Mt Rainier. Another short trip which was good as we both felt tired. Arrived before lunch and it is beautiful. as I sit here now, I can look out of the window at a gorgeous lake and Mt Rainier...what more can you ask for!!! For it to be a bit cooler I think.

Jul 26, 2007 - Rick and Tina's

We stopped in Eatonville for a few days to see Kat's son Rick and his family. Tina and the grandkids Tyler and Cheyenne are all well, as is Rick. We didn't get to see much of Rick. He left the evening we got there to attend 'labor relation' classes or some such in the big city. One of the big cities, maybe Spokane? We did have a nice dinner at Ruby Tuesdays in Puyallup with most of the Washington side of the family. Troy and Mike were there along with Kat's half sister Kim. We all got there separately and embarrassingly enough Kat didn't...
