Ranald MacDonald

While on our scenic drive, Hubby and I came across this interesting bluff.  I think it is basalt; we have a lot of that in eastern Washington.    I can see this as inspiration for some free motion quilting!

It is close to lunch time by now, and we have come to a state park.  Yes, it is the smallest state park in Washington, and it is a gravesite.

It was fun to learn about him.  Ranald MacDonald was quite the adventurer!  I wish I could’ve known him…oh, the stories he could tell!

We sat on a bench in front of Ranald MacDonald’s monument, ate our lunch,  enjoyed the warmth of the sun and the Kettle River flowing by.
