We visited our Boles trailer on the mountain this last weekend for a much needed break. We brought the dogs too, and Rocky our beagle decided to go on a walkabout after a scent trail. He did eventually come back, very tired (above).
We enjoyed our new deck, watching the sunset.
Tom replaced a rock guard panel that had blown away in 100 MPH winds last winter. It actually looks better than the vintage panel so we may need to replace that as well.
The dogs are enjoying the new deck,
as is Bruce, out new wine stopper.
We listened to All Blues on my iPhone for the last time on KPLU before it becomes community owned on Wednesday.
While we were enjoying our deck, Tom noticed two bucks that looked a lot like burnt stumps to me.
Then they stood up and were more obvious.
Here is Mount Rainier in the fading light.
But the nice things about going away is that you appreciate home more when you come back.
