A return from the Netherlands was inevitable. Though we tried desperately to convince our new Dutch allies to adopt us, eventually the month of June ended and we awoke as if from a dream back in the United States.
A heat wave had taken hold of most of the US in late June/early July. The heat coupled with the humidity was barely tolerable at best! Time to break out the grill and go swimming in the rivers and lakes dotting the landscape, I suppose…
From the Cloud King’s parking place in Augusta, Maine, we started the long trip back to Oregon, stopping first in the colonial land of Massachusetts.
North Hampton, Massachusetts! A lovely setting for a house concert at our friends Liz and Adam’s place. Though the mosquitoes were thirsty, a good time was had by all!
Here we have Caterskill Falls, a great place to climb and then enjoy the refreshing swim!
From New York to Ohio in one fell swoop!
First, a radio performance on WYSO
And into Indiana in the middle of the night. Bugs galore!
We played a lovely house concert at Connie and Steve Lyman’s home in Indianapolis, IN. on Saturday July 19th. Our first ever show in Indianapolis was a success!
From Indianapolis, we traveled to southeastern Indiana for another house show the next evening at the Bird Hollow Farmstead!
A very impressive garden.
What a lovely stretch of land down there in rural Indiana they’ve got.
A hop skip and a jump through Iowa and Nebraska…
And before you know it, we were in Colorado again!
Ah, the wild west…
Here’s the setting for our lovely penthouse concert in Denver on July 26th.
Later on we hiked to beautiful Ice Lake for Basho’s Birthday Bash!
The valley leading up to the lake…
Sheryl and Jenn hanging out by the lakeside. 🙂
San Juan Mountain Range…whoatime.
