Rufus gives his April Forecast..:  Warm weather today will rapidly change overnight to a chilly, wet week ahead.  Breezy conditions, with the potential for rumblings of THUNDER and graupel or small hail on both sides of the Cascades, although more likely east.  Moderate-to-heavy showers....

"At the time, J.T. was managing the Milton Box Company in Glenwood, Washington - a company that was about to be sold to "eastern interests." Not particularly keen on those "East Coast boys," J.T. began looking around for a West Coast lumberman who might want to get his hands on a pine operation. E.S. Collins' name came bubbling to the surface, so J.T. made an appointment to meet the man."
Some history about the Collins family and Mt Adams Pine Company

Interesting article:  except they mention Conboy as near Trout Lake and no mention of Glenwood. 
SANDHILL CRANES THRIVE IN THE NORTHWEST

HAVE YOU BEEN TO MEADOW ROCK ALPACA FARM IN TROUT LAKE?
The store is worth stopping to visit.  The socks made from Alpaca Wool are so soft.  An interesting story about owner Barbara.  Her ancestor, in the late 1800's traveled from the east coast and arrived at Chenowith Landing, to meet her new husband.  She was wearing a dress made of Alpaca Wool.

Thanks to Oca Hoeflein,  for the above web cam.
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.
