Fall Color in the Canyon

Last weekend I attended the annual retreat of the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts Board of Directors, and made a quick stop at the house to deal with a couple of issues for Leo and photograph windows and insulation.  While I was there I got some shots of the fall color in the canyon that I wanted to share, including the Szmania's grape harvest, a day or two before they harvested.  I'm sorry I couldn't capture the trip across Blewett Pass, with the smoke cleared and the Tamaracks in full glory.  But the little Brender Canyon is nothing to sneeze at, beauty-wise!  Enjoy.

Shhh . . . Don't tell Julie and Ludger we ate some grapes!

Squirrel footprints.  He got confused and ran up my leg!

Looking towards Wenatchee further out the canyon.


  1. Nice pad...coming along. What kind of grapes did you steal for Ludger & Julie's vines?
    You have some really nice neighbors...did you know that before you bought the land. There are going to be some pretty amazing meals...if there haven't already been some!
    When are you moving in?

    1. Thanks - can't wait to pour you a glass of wine in my kitchen! I am not sure which of L&J's grapes we ate, but they're growing Syrah, Sangiovese and Merlot. And yes, they are fantastic people. We haven't seen them that much out there, because we're on different schedules. They tend to come over on MOndays, because they work the restaurant on the weekends. We are there on the weekends. I think we'll be moving in about 5 weeks, but right now, we don't have a completion target date.
