Mark Nelsen takes a look at the  ECMWF Weekly Maps  
and what they forecast.  Not much change. 

FROM THE PAST
Not sure what happened to the plans for this electric railway.

This photo of Alice Slim Jim Charley was featured today at
Historic Hood River. 
Part of the caption says: 
"This astonishing portrait of Alice Slim Jim was taken by Archie McKeown in 1954. She was about 79 years old according to notes on this photo (though her gravestone at Mountainview Cemetery says she was born in 1882, so she would be about 72 if that is correct). When she died in 1972, The Goldendale Sentinel reported that she was "believed to be the last survivor of the Hood River Indian tribe, the Watlalas of the Chinooks."

Glenwood is a small farming, ranching and logging community located in the Glenwood Valley on the southeast side of Mt Adams.  In early days, the valley was called Camas Prairie, for the wild Camas plant that grows in the lake bottom and  harvested by Native Americans.    "Lake bottom" is what the locals refer to the part of the valley that floods in the spring with snow melt.  It forms a large lake which eventually drains down the canal into the Mill Pond, then Outlet Creek and over Outlet Falls to the Klickitat River.
In the spring, the "lake bottom" turns purple with blooming Camas.  During the summer, the "lake bottom" turns into a grassy valley used by ranchers for hay and becomes home to ducks, geese, sand hill cranes, elk, frogs, deer and any of us that want to gaze upon its beauty and diversity. 

Peter Conboy was one of the first homesteaders in the valley  and the Conboy Lake Wildlife Refuge carries the family name.  But don't bring your boat expecting to find a lake to play in.  
Early notable residents of Camas Prairie:
 Pioneer Botonist Wilhelm N. Suksdorf.
The Pioneer Saga of Cody Chapman.
