Civil War reenactment Cheney, Washington 2nd photo set

Well worth the trip, really a neat experience! Make sure and check out the 1st group of pictures posted just before this.

Civil War reenactment Cheney, Washington

Went to an event that we had never attended today. It was really a cool experience. You are right at the front of watching the history of our country unfold right in front of your eyes. Even if you aren't a Civil War buff the activity and pageantry will enthrall you. This event runs through Monday and if you get a chance you should go. A gentleman name Nick Adams was there participating and has written a book about the Civil War. I am going to put in 2 groups of photo's in different posts so you'll have to check them both out.

Columbia Plateau Trail Turnbull

Walked the srtetch of the Columbia Plateau Trail that passes along the northern most end of th Turnbull National Wildlife Preserve. The Canadian Geese were promenading with their babies, the Ruddy Duck Male was gorgeous with his blue bill and very intent on keeping all the other suitors away from his girl. The little Coot with its black feathers and white bill was out. The swallows were swarming around the bridge as I came back, unhappy that I was getting close to their nests under the bridge. A couple of Elk made a dash with another hiding behind the tree's until I had passed by. Spring is a wonderful time along the trail.

Riverfront Park and Gonzaga sun day & Bikers Against Child Abuse

Went through town and down to Riverfront Park on a hot saturday in May and found Kids having a wonderful time in the rotary fountain. A balloon artist was plying his trade, a motorcylce club, Bikers Against Child Abuse ,  was set up at an event and a drum corps was entertainging the crowds. Around the river along the river some visionary students had put hammocks up along the pond in the tree's and were enjoying the sun and coolness off the water. The Canadian Geese babies were out and about. An artist had set his easal up along the river. The Expo 74 butterfly again had wings! A perfect May day.

Columbia Plateau Fish Lake & Pixie

Pixie has her own bike trailer. A man was taking advantage of the beautiful weather and fishing on the lake.
