While a portion of the park was:
The fog created a mystical atmosphere in which to explore...
There are markers, where there used to be streets; and also paths and beautiful grounds to wander...
We drove around the nearby Butte and noticed all the cars at the Visitors Center, a place we would visit if we were out of towners! We are so fortunate to have such a lovely place so close to home and we sometimes just take it for granted.
We were also a short drive to Portland so drove up there to check on Mom's place. She had the misfortune to soak her beans on a hot stovetop (she didn't realize it was on). Coming home several hours later her place was filled with smoke! The beans had burnt themselves to the pan instead of just soaking them! So fortunate she didn't burn the place down, but unfortunately her place smells of smoke. The insurance adjuster comes tomorrow so we are hoping she can get everything cleaned and back to normal.... I think it's going to take a while!
If you have any suggestions on ridding a home of smoke we'd love to hear!
And while we take a weekend to relax, we also reflect on the hardships others must endure.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
