Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Family visit & day trip

My daughter Nancy and her husband Simon came from Washington to spend the LaborDay weekend with us. We had a great time. We went to Crater Lake for a day trip since they had never been there. Crater Lake is only about 54 miles from our house.
 It was created by a volcano eruption of  Mt. Mazama roughly 7,000 years ago. The erupted mountain fell back into the crater creating a Beautiful lake. You can see a small island called Wizard Island on the left side of the lake. The lake is fed by snow melt and rain and is about 2,000 ft deep.
 It was a gorgeous day with plenty of sunshine. We enjoyed a picnic lunch on the overlooking wall by the lodge.  Nancy & Simon left this morning and now Clay & I will make plans to head out for our own road trip next Tuesday through Idaho, Montana & up to Canada. I will be posting pictures for sure.
