Last week, I did a quick camping overnight at Washington’s Maryhill State Park. It’s about 2 hours from home, on the other side of the Cascade Mountains. I drove through that area a couple months ago; you may remember my fascination with wind turbines.
Here’s the daylight view, with knitting.
I met up with my friend Vickie so we could visit Tsagaglalal, She Who Watches.
She’s a Native American petroglyph that was etched and painted into the rock perhaps 250 to 300 years ago. She Who Watches is located in what is now Columbia Hills State Park in Washington, and is only viewable through a guided walk with the park.
Along the way, one can also see other pictographs (rock paintings, as opposed to etchings or carvings).
She Who Watches is at the end of this guided walk. Very cool! There are also some petroglyphs that have been relocated to this park from Petroglyph Canyon, which was flooded when the Dalles Dam was built.
The knitting? It’s the second knitting of the Lantern Moon Indochine, this time in the color Viridian. This piece is done and blocking. On to the companion piece! All will be revealed, soon.
In other news, the blueberries are early this year! Ripe and ready for picking. I made my first cobbler of the season from my favorite recipe that I’ve been using since 1986. You can find the recipe here.
It was deiicious, as usual. We had it a la mode, in the back yard, as a belated Father’s Day celebration.
What did you knit this weekend? Did you go to Black Sheep Gathering? I’ve never been, but some day…
