      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

A return to Horseshoe Basin

Posted by joeabbott on January 22, 2017

A few months back I wrote up a little post on my trip to Horseshoe Basin with my old Test Lab chums … these are old Boeing co-workers who I’ve been hiking with for the past 25 years out and around Washington, mostly in the Cascades. But, aside from our outing, we only see each other two other times during the year: once a few weeks prior to the outing when we meet up to discuss our plan, and again, a few months after the hike when we meet up to swap pictures. In these days of Dropbox and any other of the various digital file-sharing options, we don’t really need to get together for picture-swaps, but we still hand each other photos (on CD … we’ll soon need to change that to USB drives or something) and enjoy an evening reminiscing the event and socializing with our chums and their spouses.

But, here are a few of the better pictures I got from Ron and Tim of our journey through the northern parts of Washington state.







It’s a joy to look over these pictures and recall those days of warm sun, cold nights, and good friendship on a trail. They were more than good days; they were some of the best of my life. Thanks for dropping in.
