Well it’s good to be back to the blog and settling back into another winter day in Montana.
My wife and I took a few days off to travel over to Washington State to visit Family. An Escape from our routine was in order.
We had a fun trip and lots of sunshine. Although it was still winter the sun was a welcome site from the cold & blustery.
Some interesting sites and tidbits along the way:
Grand Coulee Dam. Constructed during the depression era and finished in 1941, it is one of the largest man-made concrete structures in the world. It’s part of the Columbia River Hydro System which contains a series of 14 dams and generates more than 6,800 of the combined 35,000 megawatts of the system. Apparently there is also a laser light show projected on the dam wall during the evenings complete with music and narration. Strange.
We also got to see a live trout display…Um yeah, I don’t think I can even post a comment on this one. The display was next to the plastic tomahawks in the gift shop. Need I say more.
But we did get to see some beautiful scenery along the Columbia River and all the way up to north central Washington. We visited my Grandparents who live in the great little town of Oroville that sits a few miles from the Canadian border.
So now that we’re back, it’s time to get busy and post some new tutorials. In the next week or so I will be discussing setting up an efficient workstation and also the dreaded color management conundrum.
And hopefully along the way we will have some more photography from this winter. If I can manage to sneak out of here.
In the meantime, it’s good to be back and will have some more posts soon.
