M ATTER It?s the kind of thing you hear all the time as a kid: Grown ups saying that you are special, that you can accomplish anything you want, and that the world is full of possibilities. It seems true enough so you work hard in school, get a job, and imagine that one day you will stop, take a deep breath and say, ?At last, I am where I want to be.?Fast forward to the reality of the moment and it can feel like those words may never be uttered. Platitudes to ?specialness?do little to pay the bills.

Adam Campbell Quite plainly, however, you are special, and you do matter. The pressures of the world often make us feel small. But in fact you are much bigger than you know, more important than you realize, and you have the potential to achieve greater feats than can even be imagined. And all it really takes to change the world is for you to be you every day. Investing in life, in the moment, in the things that matter to you. The large and small ways you spend your time and your money, shape the world around you. So what matters to you? 4

O PPO SI TE D AY Ross Carper



It is decidedly brisk today. In other words: upon emerging from our cozy Airbnb cottage, an arctic blast to our faces makes the decision for us. Our Coeur d? Alene walkabout will include ducking into as many galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants as possible. We?re not mad about the prospect.

endless days on the beach or at a friend?s cabin, enjoyed performances at the summer theatre, and played out some Friday-night-lights-eque scenes against a cross-border rival. But this city is changing, and there?s a lot to learn. Today will be about deliberately opposing my prevailing impressions of Coeur d?Alene as an ignorant youth. It?s opposite day.

I grew up in the Inland Northwest? Spokane to be precise? so this quick getaway with my wife isn?t about discovering something totally new. I know this place a bit. Enough to have spent

First impression to oppose: Coeur d?Alene is for summertime. We?re here intentionally in the offseason, when fewer tourists are around and there is more

time for relaxation and conversation. We?ll head east a few miles to view dozens of bald eagles as they swoop down to snatch kokanee out of Wolf Lodge Bay in their annual feast. We?ll take the time to focus on off-the-beaten-path restaurants, which take the time to focus on each plate. We?ll walk the trails and look out over the cold gray depth of the lake, seeing it differently than the bright swimming-pool blue of summer. There?s a calm, small-town beauty to this place in the cold months.

Second impression to oppose: Coeur d?Alene is for rich old people. As a child, it seemed like the Coeur d?Alene Resort itself took on this persona in my mind of a huge-haired, gold-braceleted 80?s lady: super nice, someone my mom might like... but not really my style. The resort doesn?t really deserve that characterization, but that?s what is in my mind. Luckily, despite the building cutting an immense shape against the sky from anywhere near downtown, there is far more to the city than one hotel. Of course, instead of in a

gilded resort, our day begins in the garage of a couple not that much older than us. Okay, not really in the garage. In a really nice, perfectly appointed little one-bedroom apartment that shares the same building as their garage. Venturing out, we know a day like this calls for excellent coffee. DOMA?s coffee lab at their roastery is closed Saturdays, but we also know where to get one of their single-origins anytime: Vault, on Sherman. Caffeinated and satisfied, we?re ready to buzz around to a few spots that feel fresh and

new. The Art Spirit Gallery is first on our list; they recently celebrated their 20th anniversary not too long after their new curator, Mason Miles, celebrated his 20th birthday. During a recent conversation, Miles relayed the surreal story of how he gained the position at this iconic spot for top-end northwest artists to show their work. A curious and art-obsessed student at North Idaho College, he began spending time at the gallery in 2016, and his attentiveness caught the eye of manager Blair Williams

8 9

and founder Steve Gibbs. Early on, Gibbs challenged Miles to hang his first show? the thoughtful, meticulous process of placing pieces that Gibbs was known for. Everyone had expected a teachable moment, in which everything had to be Adam taken down and redone. But, whenCampbell Gibbs paced through the gallery, there weren?t any changes. ?He had the eye,? said Williams. ?Just something you can?t teach.? Ten days after Miles was hired on, Gibbs was diagnosed with ALS. The mentoring process sped up as Steve slowed down. Just months later, on New Years Eve 2016, Steve Gibbs passed away. Almost exactly one year after that, Gibbs?s dear friend, the iconic Inland Northwest artist Harold Balazs, passed as well. We?ve profiled both Steve and Harold in these pages, so today?s walk through the Art Spirit Gallery is an emotional experience. Knowing the new story of Mason just getting his start, there is a clear and current passing of the torch, from one generation to the next. The rest of today continues along the ?next-generation CdA? theme: we embrace the new by lingering in Thrux Lawrence, smelling and feeling sturdy leather goods as we stare at the variety of young owner Tanden Launder?s mixed-media Americana artwork. Later we?ll see more of his pieces on display as we eat dinner at Syringa, a Japanese cafe and sushi bar in midtown. Owners Autumn and Viljo Basso are a powerful young culinary couple who have also recently launched Midtown Bluebird (New American) and the brand-new White Pine Coffee in the same neighborhood, creating a well-deserved regional following for their businesses, which (bonus knowledge) are named respectively for Idaho?s state flower, bird, and tree. After a couple days of knocking around like this, we?re fully convinced that, though we?re neither rich nor old, and certainly a long way from summer, we are right where we belong in this latest version of Coeur d?Alene.

N ATURE The air is like water. It has a current all its own, flowing softly and evenly, and we are immersed in it. It surrounds me, crisp and cold, it presses up against my face, my legs, and my jacket: although it?s windproof the air is pressing up against it, the air that is cold and flows like water; the air we are immersed in. The air is fragrant. It smells like pine forest and snow, rich and wholesome. When I open my mouth it pours over my tongue and down my throat like ice-cold mountain water? the water that is life-giving air. Its coldness fills my lungs and my body consumes it, heats it, and exhales it. The crazy thing is, I don?t think about it at all; it?s second nature. I'm at Mission Ridge with the family and it?s an average day. By average, I mean awesome snow and a tremendous time. I?m not sure I qualify as a skier. I do ski, however, I feel that the term 'skier' denotes a certain level of skill and know-how that I most assuredly do not possess. Last season, a freak accident cut my learning period short (on day two, to be precise), so this season, I?ve had all kinds of hang ups. My return to Mimi (green) was mental anguish; about halfway down I was ready to quit forever. I cannot describe how difficult it was to complete that run. I ended up doing it a couple more times that day and saying things like ?I think I?ll just keep doing this one until I?m comfortable; maybe all season.?


As it turns out, I was full of crap though, because the next time out, the siren song of skiing called me higher up Mission. I was still obsessing over perfectly groomed terrain, maintaining complete control at all times, not going too fast, the way my boots felt, the way the skis turned, the pitch of the run, other people nearby, and pretty much anything else you can think of. But I?d caught the bug? correction? it?s more of a drug (in the best sense of the word) and I couldn't get enough.

On this particular day though? the perfectly average, amazing cold air day at Mission Ridge with the family? it felt like we had the whole hill to ourselves. We did run after run after run (no black diamonds for me, yet) on fresh powder, under blue skies, breathing that life-giving air as we skied. And then something funny happened. I realized I wasn?t thinking about it at all. It felt like second nature. Mostly.

Arguably the best powder in the state is found in Wenatchee, WA at Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort. It features four chair lifts and 36 designated runs. You'll find trails, chutes, screamers, and bowls with a 2,250 foot vertical drop. The backcountry is easy to access, but do remember to check in with ski-patrol before you head out. 14

SLO PES FI ELD REPO RT N o . 0 2 2 5 1 8 A C LOCATION: Wenatchee, Washington TOPIC: Outdoor Adventures CONDITIONS: Hot, cold, hot again, cold

CO M M EN TS: I had the good fortune of recently walking deer paths in the Cascade foothills after a winter melt off that allowed for early access to some otherwise snow covered territory. It was warm in the sun but brisk in shadowed drainages and though the paths we took were relatively dry, the northern, snow-covered slopes were a constant reminder that it was indeed still winter. We packed the camera and found some interesting specimens; Chukar hollows nestled away in big sage, the remains of countless coyote feasts, and the centerpiece of our tour--the discovery of a mule deer shed. We could have passed by that antler a half dozen times and not seen it, it was so beautifully nestled in the grass. K EY FEATURES: This time of year we all start to itch for some outdoor adventure free of cold and snow. It's easy to be tempted to violate closed preserves and other no-access lands. Be sure that your adventures take place on open public lands or private property with permission. When traversing the countryside in the late winter and early spring, ground can be soft and emerging plants are easily damaged. We recommend sticking to established trail systems or following deer trails.

SP O K A N E FI ELD REPO RT N o . 0 3 1 3 1 8 RC LOCATION: Spokane, Washington TOPIC: Spokane brewers, ultra-short list CONDITIONS: Hazy (more ways than one)

CO M M EN TS: Outside the front doors of The Blackbird, near Spokane's Riverfront Park, the hazy exhaust from the smoker has me thinking about lunch already, and it's not even 10. Inside, as the chefs stoke the fires, I accuse Patrick McPherson of intentionally using exhaust to divert the aroma toward the sidewalk, drawing people in. He denies it. Patrick is a busy person, with both Manito Tap House and The Blackbird, so I keep it short, asking him just a couple rapid-fire questions. Q : What are your favorite of the Spokane breweriesthat have popped up in the past few years, strictly by the quality of the beer? A : I'll give you two that are putting out really interesting beers. First, I'd say Perry Street Brewing for sure, because Ben Lukes and the crew are in such a consistent groove over there. Second, for me it has to be Whistle Punk Brewing downtown in the former Brooklyn Deli spot in Railroad Alley. Particularly, a lot of brewers don't have excellent hop-forward beers when they first start, but right out of the gate, Matthew Hanson has done a great job. I've really enjoyed some of the hazy beers and interesting flavors coming out of there. I just wish they had more capacity so we could have more of their stuff on tap. Q : Shiftingto food, what are your favorite menu itemsright now at each of your spots? A : I love the Tap House Empanadas up at Manito, and down here, it has to be the General Tso's Cauliflower -- and I don't even like cauliflower. Q : No further questions. A : Okay.

RETREAT FI ELD REPO RT N o . 0 1 1 6 1 8 A C LOCATION: Mazama, Washington TOPIC: Parental Breather CONDITIONS: ...quiet

CO M M EN TS: At last we were off together--time away from home, from work (almost), and of course children (whom I love, really). I think we can all recognize the need to get away from your kids, at least for a little while. Be it a date or a quick and restful getaway, turns out all you really need in life is sleep and a full belly. We achieved both at the Freestone Inn. I once worked with a guy who told me all he did on his vacation with was sleep for twelve hours at this place. At the time I didn't fully grasp how lovely just doing nothing is when you are a parent and hardworking adult. A decade later, I totally get it. And while there are numerous things to do at the Freestone like fish, or bike, or hike, or heli-ski, we mostly we just relaxed. K EY FEATURES: The Sandy Butte Bistro has a fantastic menu and a great cocktail program and the recently remodeled Jack?s Hut now features plenty of room for the whole family, to enjoy pizza and fun (there?s a pool table!) any time of the year.

A L FRESCO Rhona Baron


The pilot sniggered over the intercom as the plane lifted from Maui. ?Awesome weather back in Seattle. Winds twenty miles an hour, hard rain and 39 degrees!?My heart sank, knowing my final destination of Leavenworth would be even colder. I?d splurged on mermaid-green toenails soon after arriving in paradise and they?d carried me across a dozen beaches only to surface, wrecked and needing removal, the morning I departed. My aesthetician was jealous of my return. Hailing from Colorado, she found Hawaii?s laid-back pace and pleasant temperatures boring. As we chatted, she grabbed images of Leavenworth on her cell phone. ?So pretty,?she cooed. The Bavarian village appeared, covered with snow and lit like a fairytale fantasy. ?Yeah,? I said. ?It?s great in the summer when we?ve got the BBQ going...?Because my preferred habitat is open sky, I do love my home town nestled in the Cascades, but come on! It?s way less fun doing things outdoors when temperatures plummet. After three weeks in the 50th state, my re-entry was excruciating. Google research indicated I was suffering from a real thing called ?post vacation blues.? As the luscious tropical sun set over the wing of the plane, I figured it would be smart to try something new to avoid the dumps. Perhaps it was time to join the growing number of people who bundled up before ordering brats or brews. They seemed to enjoy winter dining al fresco. Whatever. At least I?d be outside.

Glowing from November through Valentine?s Day, Leavenworth sports half a million colored lights. My hat, parka, boots and padded gloves kept me warm strolling into the village under a sparkly canopy. The time had come to make a decision. Icicle Brewery get awards for the best looking of the al fresco bunch and it?s often full, even on a snowy day. The setting of Munchen Haus, if you are brat-focused, is the most enchanting, in my opinion. Right up the hill you?ll find the Leavenworth Sausage Garden, serving Cured?s locally made, artisan sausages. It would be impossible to beat their quality.

26 27

Then there?s the Wok About Grill, where choices range from veggies, meats and noodles, all stir-fried while you wait. A spicy plate seemed just the thing. Climbing a long flight of stairs, I mused how Leavenworth is known for its views. Even so, the setting at The Wok is exceptional. A couple friends and I settled onto the second story deck as the mountains, patched with snow and gleaming behind flame towers, reminded me of why I?d moved to the Upper Wenatchee Valley thirty years before. The friendly owner, Shon, greeted us with locally crafted beers.

?People want the full outdoor experience,? Shon explained. ?Our patio fills up with folks dressed and eager for the crisp air? I could understand the general theory, but for me, the fire elements, along with strategic cover in inclement weather, made it more alluring. I asked about the flames. ?The central flame tables and the towers are really for appeal,? he continued."Everyone likes to gather around fire. The overhead heaters provide the heat.? He gestured around the deck. On the coldest days the Wok might run eight heaters powered by propane. It was a comforting ratio.

Our plates arrived, fragrant steam curling upward as forks and sticks were applied. The food at The Wok is very good; delicious, healthy/fresh food, in an atmospheres that leads to easy conversation. My table mate Neil added his theory. ?It?s a buddy bar thing,? he stated. I considered his point. All the venues are designed for sharing table space, focused around fires. Neil explained. ?You'll sit down and at first a guy might be offended. But ten minutes later you?re visiting like best friends? you always find something in common."

28 29

As we ate and talked, the afternoon faded. A flock of Canada Geese honked overhead. I added another layer of clothing. A little late in doing so, I?d violated the first rule of staying warm: always stay ahead of the cold. I?d nearly forgotten about the temperature, even though the best part of the evening was being outside. With the unique ambiance, good conversation and great food available in Leavenworth, dining al fresco in cold weather is definitely something I?ll embrace in the future. The option gives me something to look forward to next year? after I get back from Hawaii.

& REW A RD Ross Carper

?If I?ve said it once, I?ve said it 1,000 times: entrepreneurship is 90% assuming risk and 10% fighting back tears as you smoke Lucky Strikes alone in the alley behind the Moscow Food Co-op.? 54

Austin Storm can?t help himself. In conversation, he?ll move from literature to architecture to business to community development; laughing now, then serious and gentle-toned, waxing poetic about the profession of helping people clothe themselves for confidence and for expression. I can?t tell because we?re on the phone, but perhaps he?s also waxing the Captain-Hook ends of his moustache, which he wears like many aspects of his personality: somewhere on the map between earnest and ironic. Storm, along with his wife and business partner, Laura planted himself in the Palouse region, launching businesses and projects with abandon; following up the initial excitement with years of careful planning and execution. He doesn?t mind poking fun? at cultural trends, but mostly, at himself. He?s a ham whenever a camera comes out. He?s chronically optimistic and open to what could be next, not only for him and Laura, but also for Moscow, Pullman, and Colfax. ?For me, it was having that encouragement and partnership from Laura,? he says. ?Almost a decade ago, when I was adrift, in between things. I kept dreaming out loud about how it could be great to start an independent consignment shop full of great clothing. And she said, ?Okay, you should do that.?



There was something profound about this blunt idea? to not let fear crumble the bridge between a dream and opening day. For the Storm Cellar, that opening came in November 2009, on Main Street in downtown Moscow, Idaho. Then came Hansel & Gretel in 2012, their spinoff focused on maternity and children?s goods, which they grew into its own successful business and recently sold to another entrepreneur. In late 2017, the Storms ventured into Colfax with Bully for You, a store devoted to vintage and found furniture, decor, and ?other whimsical tomfoolery.?

In between the stores, Austin found time to develop Consign Cloud, a merchant software solution for his industry. He and Laura also bought, refreshed, and sold a historic building on Main Street in Moscow (now home to the beefy, live-music goodness of Humble Burger); they launched a co-working space called Brick & Mortar, along with various other pursuits.


Rather than listing off accomplishments, Storm is quicker to talk about the why, and the new space he feels he and Laura occupy in their community. ?I love this area. I grew up in Maryland and came here for school [New St. Andrews College in Moscow]. But there was something too special to leave here,? he says. ?It?s this mixture of small-town, rural living with the cultural and intellectual energy that surrounds the universities. Plus, through this life as entrepreneurs ? following our passions, trying a lot of things, some going better than others ? we seem to have earned this place in other people?s lives, giving them permission, explicitly or implicitly, to just try something.? He adds, ?I mean, come on: debtors prisons were outlawed in America in the

mid-nineteenth century.? He returns with dark humor to the risks of entrepreneurship; it?s clear the Storms value a sense of levity while forging an unconventional career path. He shares about their next project: self-producing an HGTV-style reality show about converting a portion of their Colfax building into a ?jungalow-themed? Airbnb unit? sort of a craftsman vibe, with lots of plants. I suspect it will succeed: the videos, the apartment, and/or both.

Whatever the Palouse is or isn?t ready for today, when they?re ready for something new tomorrow, the Storms? and a growing network of young, community-minded entrepreneurs? will be there to help make it. I get the sense that creating stylish, new things while reclaiming the best old things is the through-line that connects all of their projects. And that creative act, and the orbit of relationships that surrounds it, is the reward Austin and Laura reap along the way.

But I didn?t hear him right at first; I honestly thought he said juggalo-themed Airbnb unit. We laugh over the absurd prospect. ?Colfax isn?t ready for a juggalo-themed Airbnb,? he says. ?I don?t know that the world is ready for that.?

HO W - TO SAGE & BLOOD ORANGE BI SCUI TS This focaccia is the perfect addition to your spring charcuterie board or a lovely afternoon snack. Consume with chevre or your favorite Tumalo Farms cheese. You?ll be bringing this bread on picnics, and packing it in your backpacks when you hit the trail. Hannah Brzozowski, F&C Oregon 60

I N G RED I EN TS 1 ½ cups room temperature water ½ tsp dry active yeast 3 ½ all-purpose flour ½ tsp sugar 1 tsp salt 1 blood orange 10-12 fresh sage leaves high quality extra virgin olive oil coarse salt high desert honey

M ETHO D In a large bowl, combine the water and yeast. Let this mixture sit until yeast is dissolved and foamy. Add the flour, sugar, and salt and mix gently with your hands until the dough is combined. Mixing should take about one minute. Cover the bowl and let the dough rest for about 30 minutes. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the dough, then stretch and fold the dough about four times. Be mindful not to press air out of the dough.

Making sure oil is evenly distributed let the dough rest again, this time for 20 minutes. Fold the dough four times again, adding more oil if needed. The dough should be more smooth looking at this point. Let the dough rest again for 20 minutes. Preheat a baking stone to 475 °F (485 °F if at 4000ft + altitude). Lightly dust a cutting board or cool sheet pan with flour and stretch your dough to the corner. Gently pulling, lifting,

and stretching the dough without ripping it. Dimple the focaccia with your fingers. Place the thinly sliced orange rounds on the focaccia, sprinkle coarse salt, and drizzle olive oil over the dough. Gently slide the dough from the board to the hot stone. The bread takes about 10-12 minutes to back. Once out of the oven drizzle with honey. Serve warm with chevre or your favorite soft cheese.

It was a sunny January day and I was headed for an unexpected stop at the Confluence Health walk-in clinic in Wenatchee. I was in pain, for sure, and to be completely honest, a little frightened. I really didn?t know what to expect. I?d just destroyed my knee whilst enjoying the outdoors and now I headed indoors. Beyond pain and fear I felt something else as well: gratitude. Gratitude for the ski patrol, the on-call doc at the hill, and at this very moment, my wife, who was easing me into a wheelchair. William Arthur Ward said that ?Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings? I think he left out ?awful days,? but I agree with the sentiment. Fostering a spirit of gratefulness is one of the best things one can do to improve relationships, psychological health, self-esteem, even your outlook on life. We all have the ability and the opportunity to cultivate gratitude in our daily lives. Confluence Health is grateful not only for the outstanding physicians, nurses, employees, dedicated volunteers, and leadership teams, but also grateful for the world-class care they provide to patients from around the region each and every day. A vigorous community requires thriving, healthy individuals for it to reach its potential and Confluence Health is grateful to their patients for trusting them to help with their individual efforts to improve their health and quality of life. On this particular day, I knew I was in good hands and I was grateful for everyone in my life who supports me, the team at Confluence Health included.

T imes of challenge increase the squeeze of uncertainty. Uncertainty can choke the stream of goodness and crimp the hose from which hope flows. Hope affects how we anticipate tomorrow

and experience today. To be low on hope is like being out of breath, all systems are compromised, making even normal-day demands difficult. Hope-dehydration can be slow to show, but quick to grow into parched seasons of want which drive me inward to dig for fresh springs of well being.

I know hope is close when I break through the crust of my personal preoccupations and begin to express gratitude before the wider-world gifts of wonder and awe. I once heard the word wonder defined as a survival skill and now I echo that sentiment.

W hen I realize wonder is out of place, I know I?m out of practice in its pursuit and head for the fields of nature to recondition. Even a low energy stroll in forest or on mountain can straighten my step and elevate my spirit. T here?s cutting edge science behind the reasons for this sensory upload, which suggests that I am not alone while walking in the woods.




Wonder is at work all around me. Peter Wohlleben?s book, The Hidden Life of Trees, reveals the existence of an intricate social network connecting trees by electrical pulse and chemical signal. Trees can send alerts to surrounding trees of an invasion from animals or insects. The alarm triggers defensive measures like rushing toxic chemicals to the leaves which transforms the delectable into distasteful. Trees also stay connected by an interdependent ?wood wide web,? a term describing vast, below-ground fungi networks which serve as tree-to-tree communication byways and transportation highways for exchanges of carbon and nutrients. Research of this network indicates that mother trees can sense and exchange information with down-line offspring


and in certain situations, offspring will continue to supply nutrients to roots and stumps of fallen parent trees for centuries. In healthy forests, dynamic tree communities abound, they bustle with the business of generation and regeneration, while contributing the fruits of photosynthesis toward the greater good of all life on our planet. Is there any wonder why hope rises in conditions such as these?Not to the Japanese, who have long practiced Shinrin-yoku or "forest bathing?. It is more expansively translated as, ?Taking in - in all of our senses - the forest atmosphere.?

Forest bathing is a measured means of self-care and preventative medicine that begins and ends with a simple, mindful walk in a natural forest setting. Along the way, delight in beauty and full-body immersion in the surroundings is encouraged. The perks of the practice include physical, mental and emotional benefits. Expanding volumes of scientific research confirm these findings. So do other voices of experience. Naturalist John Muir observed, ?Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home. Wilderness is a necessity.? Author Robert Louis Stevenson agreed, ?It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men?s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of the air, that emanation from the old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.? That, subtle something, which Stevenson alludes to, could in fact be a fragrant exposure to phytoncides, antimicrobial organic compounds released by many trees that can energize immune systems, increase pain thresholds and reduce anxiety. Other sources believe that the flush of well being could rise out of the delicate inner glow that surrounds the release of awe into our lives Natural remedies are gaining ground among medical practitioners worldwide, which in increasing numbers are prescribing ?green time? in parks and other outdoor locales. Low-stress counter measures like these help balance the pressures produced in accelerated times. A sense of balance is important when wandering the path of wonder on the way to hope.



Hope is a pivot point between peace and fear. It is more than an emotion, it?s an active essential that pries open eyes, perks up ears and sends hearts beating with the possibility of positive outcomes. Hope can boost self-image and enhance opportunity. It can?t be bought, but it can be found. It waits just over the horizon/where wonder crisscrosses awe. Take a deep breath and find your way outdoors.

I figured they would only need about 4 or 5 tattered old dry flies, so I stuck a few in my sweat stained ball cap and called it good. I wasn?t even going to bother bringing extra leader. If we ran out of tackle it wouldn?t be the end of the world, and she would probably be happy since it just meant more trail riding. My daughter hasn?t taken to fly fishing the way my older son has, and it?s tough to fight your kids? wiring.


It was a warm, sunny morning and I was itching to take to the mountains near Ellensburg, WA to catch a few trout. I knew my son would be an easy sell, but when I asked my daughter if she wanted to go on a hike and do some trout fishing, the expression on her face expressed her reticence in a way that only a 12-year-old girl can pull off. Then I tried again, ?Would you rather ride horses into the mountains and perhaps do a little fly fishing?? She almost went through the roof! Lunches were packed and the horses loaded in no time flat. Like all children, she can hustle when she wants to and as our resident wrangler that girl had horses saddled up in the blink of an eye.

The spontaneous nature of the trip meant the trout were getting off easy today. I just wanted to spend time with my kids. They?ll be out of the house, off to college, and grown up before I know it so every opportunity like this is special. As we pulled up to the trailhead I realized the entire drive had been spent talking about everything except fly fishing. We talked about middle school, sports, friends, and what they want to be when they grow up. The ride into the hills was a blast. We talked, laughed, and drenched ourselves riding through a great water 80

crossing. Disneyland has nothing on these hills? it?s such good fun. Eventually we found a place and our sore butts told us we should fish, so we strung up our rods. My son and I promptly caught a couple of trout, yet the look on my daughter?s face told us she was only marginally impressed. It was her turn next, and after a few casts she bagged a fine little trout, then a couple more, and that girl?s ear to ear grin said it all. We probably only fished about 30 minutes the entire trip, yet it stands out as one of our ?best fishing trips ever.?

My older son and I have gone on many outings since, but the chemistry of having your daughter/sister along adds something very special. It?s become one of those adventures we all like to recount. It leaves me grateful for time spent with my growing and increasingly independent daughter. I?m thankful for public land we can roam and explore, and clean, cool Cascade water that great numbers of trout still thrive in. This is truly the best of times.
