The Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving Day we traveled to Spokane to bring our handicapped son, who had been home for the holiday, back to the facility where he is a resident. We also stayed in the area with him for a few days, since I had several days off from my work.
The weather on the way was very wintry and the passes were very bad, requiring chains or traction tires. We went by way of Stevens Pass and Highway 2 and stopped along the way several times to take pictures. At that point the weather was sunny, though it soon turned gray.
We also stopped along the roads in Eastern Washington for pictures, especially at an apple orchard where the frozen Golden Delicious apples were still on the leafless trees, making quite a colorful display against the leaden skies, snow, and bare trees.
In the Spokane area the weather was snowy and the roads bad, but we did manage to get out to one of our favorite places, Manito City Park, where my wife wandered around the grounds taking pictures of the snow while I stayed inside the conservatory with our son and took pictures there.
Sunday night there was freezing fog in the area and I went out at night and took some time exposures and flash shots of the rime covered trees and branches. They were spectacular in the dim light and I managed to get a few decent pictures, though focusing and exposure were very difficult.
