A Week In View

Seen in and around Dayton, Washington.
Main Street runs East-West.  This is looking West.

Pretty running trail that runs North-South.  Here it's looking North

Touchet (pronounced TOO-shee) River looking North

Same river, but with pretty foliage.
Touchet river by a happy old hill.

My mother's brother- Uncle Steve 
See the resemblance?

My grandparent's place. Five acres out the Patit road.  My aunt and uncle bought it and remodeled.

Aunt Vina's cabin.  She was my Great-Grandmother's sister. My uncle and aunt have it now too.  Before that, it was my Uncle Vernon's. Waaay up in the hills. No electricy or running water. Or plumbing.

The inscription says "Have a seat on a glacial erratic deposited in Columbia County by the great floods of ancient Lake Missoula". Way cool.
My first cousin, Chryssee.

Chryssee's daughter, A----.
My Grandparent's mailbox, left unchanged

Happy for new siding.  The old stuff was three shades of green.

New everything inside, including the kitchen...

...and the livingroom.
As you can see, it was a happy visit to my little town.  Grey got to meet some members of my family and look around Columbia County.  And now we don't have to go back for a little while.


  1. Great photos and lots of family history. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    1. Thank you, MIL! I do love visiting there. And my family has been in Columbia County, the Tucannon and Wenaha for 150 years.
      Oh, and no surprise: everyone just loved Grey!
