Saturday Snapshot


I talk about Nevada a lot.   It's dry, it's dusty....but it's home.
Sometimes I talk about Washington State, where I grew up...on the Columbia and Snake Rivers.   It's home too.
And then once in a while I will throw in Oregon!  It's where my grandparents all lived, where my great grand-parents homesteaded in the late 1800's.
It's green!  There are trees.

We have a family cabin at Wallowa Lake in Northeast Oregon.
Sometimes we take a hike that takes us to this Totem Pole.
I've walked by this Totem Pole hundreds of times, so I thought, why not take picture for Saturday Snapshot.







Saturday Snapshot was started by Alyce of At Homes With Books and is hosted by Melinda of West Metro Mommy.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Melinda’s site.

I don't think I've ever seen a totem pole in person. I bet they're fascinating.

Cool! Have you ever read the book called The Forest Lover by Vreeland? It's the story of Emily Carr,the Canadian artist that documented many of the original Native People's totem poles in her oil paintings ... your photos reminded me of her work.

Great idea to take some photos to share with us. I used to love seeing totem poles in Vancouver. The second photo is my favourite.

Thanks for sharing this totem pole. We don't have many (any?) totem poles in southeastern Texas!

Here's my Saturday Snapshot!
