  2. And then to think that the whole west was made with help of this kind of transport.

  4. I've always had a hard time understanding how people could go across country in one of these things...it was a trip beyond belief - at least for me. I meant to thank you for the long note about your friend and your work with Habitat for Humanity. That is a super organization and we've supported in financially but I've never been in a position to get personally involved. I can see how you'd learn about construction very quickly, though! Kudos to you and all the others involved!!!

  5. A few years back I found out that Studebaker was one of the primary manufacturers of covered wagons used by people in those days... That has little to do with this sculpture, of course. Nice capture. By the way, it was a yellow iris-- one of many you can see to the left in the previous day's shot. -Bill

  6. That's such an appealing sculpture! I agree with Lowell - those pioneers were incredibly determined!

  7. Love this. As a small child Bill's great-grandmother came across from Indiana to Washington State by covered wagon. One of the last to do so. He still remembers some of the stories.
