I arrived in Spokane late afternoon for a week at the local offices. Once I had my rental car, I headed off for a visit to Medical Lake and the first find of the new Spokane GeoTour. I was greeted with blue skies and warm temperatures as summer played out the last days.

We visit the Albion Fair as often as my schedule allows. Without Ali, the goats are lonely. :)

Late fall seemed like a good time for yet another visit to Hatch Run. The are plenty of wet areas near the streams and old farm areas on the site. Both promised a look at some of the last wildflowers of the season. Combined with some time on the trails through the woods made for a good afternoon's walk.

I can always tell on my drive home when I have reached Ohio. Indiana has staunch supporters of fossil fuel including the highly inefficient ethanol and oil and natural gas through fracking. I never think of Ohio as progressive, but the residents have embraced turbines for renewable energy. This new line was being installed off US 30 near the state border.

The weekend passed quickly. Before we returned west, I took a few moments to check out the closed gentian at our home. It was a different idea to plant these close to the house, but it has worked out for years now.
