Raven


On the way to Eastern Washington last summer, a detour off the Stevens Pass Highway led us to a little speck on the map called Index - the most beautiful bend in the river you've ever seen! While the boys headed down the rocky bank with poles in hand to partake in their favorite past time, I stayed back a ways with my camera. Twenty minutes later they were hailing me down the river to witness an amazing find - charcoal drawings from old campfire ash on boulders as big as compact cars. If I hadn't known any better, I could have been standing before the ancient petroglyphs of Colorado or New Mexico. Absolutely beautiful.
