Memorial Day weekend

Spent the weekend in the Methow Valley with my sister-in-law Boo, nephew Evan, and his friend Sam. Sam brought along Charlie, I brought Nikki, and of course Chamix and Milo were there so we had a very full van and then house. It rained off and on the first day, but the weather got progressively nicer. The river was high but down from flood stage the week before. We caught a couple of events at the rodeo - barrel racing and steer riding. I didn't get any good pictures of the steer riding as they were only on a few seconds and didn't get far from the chutes. The rodeo arena is above Winthrop, up the road to Sun Mountain.




On Monday we hiked up past Climbing Rock for the views. The dogs had a great time. The Methow River:



Nikki preferred to rest in the shade, but I got this picture:
