Alder Lake State Park, Washington

Alder Lake State Park, Washington, was a gorgeous state park, low on water. No fires allowed, we have found that camping out is tough when you can not have a campfire. How do you eat folks? We are looking into propane campfires. A persons gotta eat. We don't always want to eat out at restaurants, that gets to darn pricey.

That's a fire behind the campground, across the water. They campground folks didn't think it would burn across the water, but for folks who don't love fire like us, we could not believe they were more nervous about the winds? We would see fire trucks running every where, they would have camps set up for the fire folks to stay in. Those fire fighter folks really do amazing work. We heard tons of tales. It sounds like a lot of this work is done by just the common folks, not all of them real fire fighters. some farmers get to fight their own battles, no help from any one. that's scary to me. where is their state of emergency? WHAT??!! where is their help???! their assistance?! Beth ( ;

Hello Beth, the lake and mountain scenery is gorgeous. The wildfires are scary, I thank god for all the firefighters. They put their lives on the line. When hubby and I used to camp many years ago we had a little propane stove for cooking. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Forest fire fighters do a hell of a job year in and year out. Beautiful shots, Beth!

People don't use their heads when they are inexperienced campers. Love your pictures. Have a special week.

These are some beautiful and peaceful scenes,but the threat of forest fires is not that relaxing.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
