I spent part of Saturday with this young woman and her family’s dogs. She is a senior and next year at this time she will probably be far away, at university. To me, this seems like a pretty sentimental time – remembering her youth in the Methow Valley and looking forward to life in a far different setting.
We had mild weather and the colors were still vibrant! Cottonwoods, willows, dogwoods and aspens colored the paths near the Twisp River. We visited her home with a myriad of colorful fruit trees and aspens too. And the dogs! They were happy she came home again and I know they will miss her when she’s gone next year.
I have a fun job.
