EGG ROLL

This week Mrs. Trowbridge's little shrew character finds himself in the subalpine meadows above Huckleberry Hollow in pursuit of the elusive rolling egg. The first two pages of the story can be found in the archive to your left.

Next week our son, Brad, and I will be returning to Mrs. Trowbridge's rain forest. This year we may explore the Skokomish River, hiking as far up the river as time will allow. When we return I'll report the results of our explorations on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Bron_Smith

The rhododendrons in the background of my Twitter page are a close up detail from my latest watercolor. It took 94 hours over the span of a year to complete the painting on a full sheet of watercolor paper.

What mystery lies ahead. What a lovely "hollow" this place is.

Enjoy the hike, be safe and come back with more of your great pictures.
