Starting in mid-October,
we took our little RV on a 4 week loop through Seattle,
(we flew from Oakland)
and Lake Tahoe.
we drove up
the volcano forming the southeastern part of the island.
This picture taken from several thousand feet up the mountain shows cane
fields being burned prior to harvest
and a rainbow
caused by the incoming clouds that obscured our views from the top.
On returning home,
we learned a bear had attacked our
bear-proof garbage can
at the west end of the house.
The garbage can was scuffed up but intact.
The bear has not returned.
