The Red Apple Fire was brought under control. But it’s sad to see the blackened hillsides.
We drove to Entiat the other night when the highway reopened. The fires had burned right down to the road and it was all black.
I opted to take more peaceful photos when we got to the camp. This tree was heavy with apricots just begging to be picked.
I also enjoyed some quiet time by the water.
One of the highlights of my summers here is the Leavenworth Summer Theater production of The Sound of Music. The venue is the amphitheater up in the hills. Maria actually walks through the surrounding woods in the opening scene. The Von Trapp family is up on a precipice in the final scene. The performance on Friday night was amazing and I’m so incredibly happy that I was still here to see it.
Yes, I’m planning to leave here shortly. I wish I could stay longer but it’s been ten months already and I’m anxious to see my family in Canada now that the ridiculous hotel quarantine has been lifted for fully vaccinated Canadians.
July 21 is the day when Canada will make an official statement regarding reopening borders. I’m also waiting to hear if Winnipeg will once again be an international airport. Too many rumors out there and I want to read it in black and white.
