A few weekends ago my son and I went to the Snohomish Trail Council's annual Klondike Derby, which is a winter camporee event where the scout patrols get to take part in various "gold rush"-themed events, and capping the day off with the actual race, which is a wheeled/skiid sled that the scouts themselves power around the course. This year, Troop 572 came in second place! It was a good time, despite the 18 degree temps, which Cohen and I endured with smiles on our faces in a 2 season tent:


A few weeks ago, the Historic Flight Foundation's Mig-29UB took to the skies for 3 days of certification trials, so I was able to be there to snap some photos of this magnificent relic of the Cold War. 


Also some interesting weather gave us rain, and even some snow, which the juncos had to deal with in their search for sunflower seeds.
