Temira's honesty about her Columbia Gorge weather forecasts: 

 

Random Morning Thoughts

I’ve been forecasting wind for the Gorge and snow for Mt. Hood for many years now. Over these years, I’ve received a few calls, emails, and comments from business interests asking me to “enhance” my forecasts in order to encourage people to visit both Hood River and Mt. Hood. I received another one of those emails yesterday......

READ THE REST HERE:

I honestly feel that Temira works hard at trying to give us an accurate, daily forecast.  That is why I subscribe and get an almost daily forecast in my morning email.  How else will I know we are going to have a "rainbow day"?  July is pledge month for Temira and for $12.34 I think it is a good investment.

 
 

Jim White, a forester by profession, calls himself an amateur astronomer, but I consider him pretty much a  professional in his astronomy presentations.  He has a great speaking voice, very knowledgeable about our night skies, and very patient with those of us who are not knowledgeable.   

Jim will have his telescope set up at the Trout Lake Fair Saturday night August 2, 9:00 pm at the TL School.

On Saturday, August 30, Labor Day Weekend, he will be set up at the Conboy Wildlife Refuge, on the Trout Lake/ Glenwood road starting at 8:00 pm.

Bring a flashlight to find your way back to your car, a warm jacket and if you have a telescope you are welcome to bring it.  

If it is cloudy, Jim probably won't be there.

Glenwood School 
The hub of the community I think we have one of the prettiest school settings in the state. The mountain is in view from our school windows,  playground and track field.  Sometimes we take it for granted.

 GLENWOOD

We offer a year-round bed & breakfast retreat,  located at the base of 12,276-foot Mt. Adams in the Cascade Range of Washington State. Surrounded by ponderosa pines and meadowland of the Glenwood Valley, our long-established 80-acre ranch is less than a two-hour scenic drive from Portland, Oregon.
Glenwood is a small community located in the Glenwood Valley.  In early days, the valley was called Camas Prairie, for the wild Camas plant that grows in the lake bottom and was 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.  The "canal" drains the water into the Mill Pond, then Outlet Creek and over Outlet Falls to the Klickitat River. During the summer, the "lake bottom" turns into a grassy valley used by ranchers, ducks, geese, sand hill cranes, elk, frogs, deer and any of us that want to gaze upon its beauty and diversity. 
 
Rodeo is always on Fathers Day Weekend.  When it's NOT Rodeo Weekend, the Dance Hall, Kitchen, and Campground are available for rent.  It's a great place for  weddings, receptions, family get togethers...

 A common question we hear is..."Where's Glenwood?"  In fact...the Glenwood General Store sells T shirts that say,  "Where in the hell is Glenwood?"
The easiest answer is, "Go one hour east of Portland,  to Hood River.  Cross the Columbia River into Washington and we are  40 minutes north of White Salmon.  Trout Lake is to our west, Goldendale to the east and The Yakama Indian Reservation to the north. 
With local points of interest that I added but some major mistakes by Google.  The Whitcomb cabin is NOT where Google says it is.

One thing you will notice if you are in Glenwood on a clear night....is the abundance of stars.  Every month,  Jim White, of Trout Lake, does a local astronomy page,  so we just might be able to identify what's up above.
