Today I stumbled into a Cormac McCarthy novel

I have a love-hate relationship with Cormac McCarthy. Well, with his writing, as I’ve never met the man personally and I’m sure he’s lovely. I’m not sure that anyone walks the line between gloriously descriptive and naked the way he does, and there are moments when I read his work that I need to put the book down to marvel at his words. 802 more words

Siouxon Creek: Still no Bigfoot

Since the 1950s, Bigfoot has been sighted in Skamania County, WA more than 50 times.  Sadly, the closest I came to seeing him today was this silhouette on the Chelatchie Prairie General Store (that I’m aware of–Bigfoot is notoriously skittish and the woods were pretty deep) on the way to the Siouxon Creek trail head. 818 more words
