Every year around this time I get the itch. I need to be in Cle Elum, to let the cool wind take my breath away and to soak in the vivid colors of the rapidly changing leaves. I think I love it over there so much this because it is on the cusp of winter; its the anticipation of change and of rest. Its just before the snow starts to fall and everything is under a blanket of white for nearly 5 months.
Oh. And while we were there we passed the camera around and took some photos of each other. Boom. Christmas card for mom and dad.
