Despite the fact that earlier in the month we had 9 straight days of temperatures in the eighties and set an all-time record, it is September and will soon be officially FALL. This week though, temperatures are back to normal, and the skies are grey. But during Labor Day weekend, the weather was wonderful, so we went with our friends Denny and Dianne to Flaming Geyser State Park. Located along the Green River, it is south of Auburn off the road to Black Diamond. Apparently lots of people either come to the park to float down the river or to fly model airplanes. We saw both!
The flaming geyser isn't as big as it once was, but nonetheless it's still interesting. The sign said at one time the flame was 6-8 feet high! The trail to a more conventional geyser is closed for repair.
This next photo is for those folks who think moss only grows on the north side of trees. Do not get lost in Washington state!
And yes, I've finally gotten back to knitting and am tackling some long term UFOs. More on this one later.
That's not to say there have been no new projects. This purple hat is the first one I've finished to donate to the "Don't Shake the Baby" campaign at the UW hospital. We'll see how many hats "hide" in one skein of yarn!
That's it for now; I'm off to make some soup for the first time since last spring.
