Took a short drive this morning out to the towns of Buckley and Carbonado, Washington. There really isn’t too much to them, but each little town has it’s own feel, so it’s fun to go and walk around them. Carbonado is one of those places that a million people pass by as it’s on the way out to Mt. Rainier National Park. But you have to pull of the highway to get to the actual town and I can’t imagine many folks actually make the turn. So here’s a video of the trip as well as a visit to the Carbonado Cemetery, which had graves from all the way back to the mid 1800s.
What a fun day today. Took a long road trip (250 miles each way or so!) out to Eastern Washington to Twin Lakes. Along the way stopped at Soap Lake, Grand Coulee Dam, and Nespelem. I hadn’t made that trip since 1993 when my Grandpa Chuck passed away. Twin Lakes was where we spent our summers and it was so fun to go see it. It looked exactly how it did in my minds eye. Just beautiful. I did a vlog of the trip, which you can watch here:
Everyone have a good weekend!
One of the favorite things I’ve learned in recent years is video editing. I’m still very much a beginner at it, but it is so enjoyable to tell a story using video. And with Iphones being such a solid camera nowadays, you really can make little movies just with a few clicks. Personally I just like to document my travels and every so often I’ll go back and watch a video and it’s just fun to be transported back to that time for just a few minutes. My goal for 2020 on Youtube is to produce multiple videos per month and to grow my subscriber number up to 1,000. If you want to check out my videos and help get me to my subscriber goal, here’s a link to the channel.
There’s lots of videos of visits to horse tracks as well as just personal travel.
