We went camping this past weekend in central Washington, near Grand Coulee Dam. Steamboat Rock campground is open year round and we thought it might be a little warmer over there for perhaps the last camp-out of the season. It was. But it was also gray and drizzly...
...however, as I've mentioned before, we don't mind the rain. The scenery was still beautiful, in a muted sort of way.
Late in the afternoon we enjoyed watching the herd of mule deer who casually grazed in our campsite. We counted up to 20 in the area at once, including a buck or two. They weren't exactly tame... but they sure weren't too put off by the presence of humans.
Just at sunset, the clouds broke up and the sun cast a breath-taking rainbow against the eastern sky... It lasted for quite awhile.
The next morning dawned sunny and clear.
The fall colors were brilliant.
We thoroughly enjoyed the gifts of our Creator this fall weekend!
