Darlisa Black featured this time lapse video by Enrique Pacheco of Iceland.  I suggest putting it on full screen. 

Do you know what flower this is?  Doesn't grow here in Glenwood, but Paul Slichter is finding them on the hillsides east of Lyle.  Along with ticks.  Douglas' grass widow.

Linda Steider  visited the Valley and the Refuge last week to take photos of birds.  Check her BLOG where she talks about the Fine Feathered Friends Art Show opening at Columbia Arts.

  • I arrived at Conboy as the sun came up but it stayed misty for a couple hours. Amazing how much of the refuge is covered in water this time of year.

"Wandered up to Glenwood yesterday in search of Pintail ducks that a friend told me about. They were too far from my camera so I drove around until I found a herd of elk on the refuge. Also too far, but it was so beautiful up there yesterday that I enjoyed my little adventure anyway!"

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:

It is a few miles out of town, down one heck of a steep road, but when you get there you can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy a bit of beautiful quiet on the Klickitat River.  Picnic spot, tours and a fishing pond.
