Yeah, I'm gloating, this was the view from our cabin.
These are made with his scraps!
When you see signs like this....where the name is in cursive....those are usually painting galleries.
A lot of the artisans actually live in the back of their shops. There are a few little "malls" which don't look like malls....they just house more than one artisan. It's a windy, country road and you just stumble on those little signs. (Look in the Honey shop....right below the yellow sign there is a blacksmith looking fella on a sign that says Arts & Crafts Community.) There is even an old soda shop where the Hubs likes to go get Old Fashioned Root Beer Floats. There is an art quilter. One look at the camera and she was on me like stink on a skunk. Needless to say, no pictures there! LOL
Vacations always end too quickly. *sigh* I did go bear hunting with my new camera lens. Success! It's a good thing I had the lens, though. I was so far away, I can't imagine how lame-looking the pic would have been without it. The Park Ranger even gave us (not just me....but a couple of new photo-taking friends) a personal escort back to our cars. It would seem a brown bear can run 30 mph and a human cannot. I just figured I needed to run faster than my two new friends. :)
