Adventure Day Three

Last Sunday afforded an opportunity for adventure day three – a drive to Stave Lake following a series of Pacific storms. We got as far as the Ruskin Dam on Stave River, a power station responsible for Hayward Lake. Hundreds of local fishermen, families and the curious lined any soggy bank able to support them. Every few minutes, silence interrupted as another behemoth Salmon is pulled from the lake. Shores littered with fish heads and entrails, only noticed by those of us arriving without purpose. Without question, a most satisfying adventure.

    • Funny you should mention the boat – it wasn’t a great photo (too much back light) but I included it because I found it fascinating.I wish I knew more.”Scott Free” lay in the woods about 100 yards from the road leading to the power plant. It looked like at one time there had been some sort of shed or shelter – the weird thing was (it doesn’t show in the photo) just below the slope and bushes in the frame, was a perfectly level, well tended patch of grass about 12×12 – truly odd 🙂

      • Donate just love those “what the heck” moments!!!!!

        I love the Texas Frontage roads along the Interstate because there are so many oddities laying around just off the road on their farms… Truly, farmers never thrown anything away — but the things they choose to abandon are sometimes left at the oddest places….
