Searching for Normalcy

"And finally, above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art…" – Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Washington 2009: Day 2 – Let it Snow! December 21, 2009

Filed under: Life,Personal,Photography,Travel — Lulu @ 2:59 am

Warning – Photo-heavy post.


Unlike last year’s trip to Washington, we didn’t encounter any snow at all in either Seattle or Othello. The only actual snow we saw was while traveling through Snoqualmie Pass. We stopped at the Mountaineer Lodge Rest Stop (the same place we stopped at last year) on our way from Seattle to Othello, to stretch our legs and take some photos.


“It’s SNOOOW!!” (Yes, that is actually what I was saying in this pic. I was also trying not to slip and fall.”


Man, this is a beautiful state. Seriously.



Apparently, the snow had been piling up here for a couple of days.



Fanless’ cousin’s son. He is so cute! Last year he was a little shy around me, but this year we were buddies.


Making snowballs with mommy.







Me and Lisa (Fanless’ cousin-in-law).


We were waiting for this to slide off the roof, but it never happened.


“Cheesy pickles!”


Time for a family photo (Clockwise from top left: me, Fanless, Uncle Larry, Aunt Laurie, Cousin Scott, D., Cousin-in-law Lisa).


More gratuitous scenery shots.



The Frozen Lake (I don’t know if that’s the actual name, but that’s what we were calling it).


That’s it for tonight.


Peace out, yo!
