A Good Day

New friends took me out for the day.  We searched for, and found, wild asparagus. We walked where I didn’t know we could go, and it was good. We had, get this, a small fire and had a (veggie) weiner roast! (This I haven’t done for a while. Years.)  And – we walked, and we walked. We saw the remains of a more prosperous time, 50, 60 years ago, more? This is part of the reason I came here.

The asparagus was an excellent dinner, with a bit of lemon and seasoned salt…


At the site of the old orchard and homestead.  The mountain behind is called Arthur’s Seat.


Another view of Arthur’s Seat.


The Thompson River is swollen and full of debris after a recent heavy storm. Those are snow sheds for the trains on the other side. This is rugged country.

    Beautiful Country! I wonder where they got the name Arthur’s seat 🙂

      Hah! Lots of homesick Scots here for the gold rush I suspect. I know Arthur’s Seat is in Edinburgh, but interesting that my friend’s family name is Glasgow… Big wave from over here.
