|The scenery along the drive could not have been prettier...|
|And the cherries jewel-like on the local orchards were the sweetest in recent memory...|
|Even sweeter was a child-like stop for the treat of the Peppermint Stick's ice cream. A long standing tradition!|
Ohanapecosh Campground. Just a few miles off Hwy 12 it was a welcome break for a stretch and a little contemplation beside the waters that were as clear and jewel-blue as I remembered. Not much seems to have changed from the days I roved the campground looking for toads with my tribe of cousins! Course now all I want to do is return for a weekend of camping there. Tis been far too long.
