My aunt and uncle who live in Ellensburg took a two and a half week vacation to New Zealand at the end of November and beginning of December this year. My regular readers know I house sit for them when they go away on longer trips. That way I get a vacation with free lodging and they get someone to look after things.
On Friday I arrived in Ellensburg to house sit for my aunt for a week, my first vacation in two years. The normally two hour drive ended up taking just under four hours, and today’s post was going to be about an unplanned sidetrip to Snoqualmie while attempting to avoid part of a hideous traffic jam on I-90.
But on Saturday night at around 11:30 pm, as I was checking my Facebook feed after a strenuous day of reading and dozing, I read a post from meteorologist Scott Sistek that the Aurora Borealis was visible. And here I was away from the city!
Old Brick Mill near Ellensburg, Washington. Built in 1879. (Now a private residence.) Posted for Cee’s B&W Challenge with the theme “older than 50 years.”
The theme for the WPC this week is details. “Look past the big picture and take a more intimate approach.”
For this photo I zoomed in on the fabulous window details of the Kleinberg Building in downtown Ellensburg. It was built in 1889. The photo below shows how the window details adorn the building’s facade.
