Color, color, color. Another post on Fall colors.
What can I say? It’s my favorite time of the year.
The following are some pics from our recent visit to the Turnbull Wildlife Refuge near Cheney, Washington.

Each October, the salmon and the tourists return to Issaquah, the latter in order to enjoy the annual Salmon Days Festival. We snuck in a week early, allowing us to enjoy the spectacle of the spawning fish without the accompanying throng of humanity. Here are some pics.

Here are some pics from our recent off-season trek up to Northern Idaho’s premier ski resort. If you like what you see, you can still make plans for their last event of the summer, Fall Fest.
Congratulations to Germany. After a month of soccer involving the top sides of the world, the Germans have emerged victorious. They might not have the star power of Argentina or Brazil, but they have the more complete team, which made all the difference in the knockout stages.
And the stars are coming.
Having been overshadowed by the scoring prowess of Muller and Klose, Ozil and Schurrle finally emerged on the world stage as the tournament wound down. Fans of Chelsea and Arsenal are already familiar with the abilities these two possess, but others that might not follow the EPL (English Premier League) have surely taken notice as well. It will be interesting to see how they react to defending the crown as opposed to seeking it.
Of note: This is Germany’s fourth World Cup crown, their second at the expense of Argentina. Italy also has four championships. Only Brazil has more with five.
After the debacle that took place between Germany and Brazil, it was nice to see a tightly contested match between Argentina and the Netherlands. In the end, it came down to superior keeper play by Argentina’s Romero.
So now we have an intriguing matchup between two of the titans of World Cup soccer. Messi vs. the machine. This game has all the makings of a classic. At the least, it should be vastly superior to Germany’s last match.
Of note: Germany has won it all three times, Argentina twice. The two teams have met in the final twice before, splitting the two matches. No South American team has ever won a cup final on European soil and no European team has ever won the cup when the tournament took place in South America. Point to Argentina.
