Kim Researching the Past

Curlew Lake State Park, Washington


For the last 3 days we have been camping at a state park just outside of Republic Washington, and visiting with Kim’s cousin. Both are trying to do research on their families past.

We spent the day going to British Columbia in Canada so that Laurie and Kim could check out the lists the archives, and to just soak in the feeling of what it must have been like to live in this area almost a century ago.

You know that I couldn’t help put put in an arty photo!

Today we are going to drive to a couple of old abandoned mining towns that sit almost on the Canadian border. The girls hope to get a feeling of what it most have been like for their relatives to live in a mining town, and I just hope to replenish my supply of “arty” photos.
