#SalmonFest #Wenatchee


You’re invited to Salmon Fest - The Best Show in the West! 

Looking for a great way to enjoy the last few days of beautiful weather? Come to the Wenatchee River Salmon Festival, a free family-friendly event celebrating the outdoors, science, art, and of course, salmon.
What is Salmon Fest? It’s a celebration of the return of the salmon to our northwest rivers. Every year, thousands of people converge on the grounds of the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery, located at the mouth of the scenic Icicle Canyon near Leavenworth, Washington. The festival kicks off with two special school days, September 18 and 19Saturday, September 20 is open to the public.
This year’s theme of “Salmon Adventures” comes alive with a wealth of activities: sidewalk chalk art, music, story-telling, and “edutainment.” Experience Native American culture first hand. Take part in the costume parade, win prizes in the discovery hunt, and test your fishing skills with our brand new fishing simulator. 
This is a unique opportunity to discover and appreciate the complexities of the natural world and the significance of salmon to the people of the northwest.
Learn more about the dozens of free, family-friendly activities going on this weekend:

#Hurricane #Odile #NASA

At about 10:45 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) on September 14, 2014, Hurricane Odile made landfall as a Category 3 storm near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, Odile arrived with wind speeds of 110 knots (204 kilometers or 127 miles per hour). The storm tied Olivia (1967) as the strongest hurricane to make landfall in the state of Baja California Sur in the satellite era.

Snails on a Tree from Sea Wild Earth on Vimeo.

Hit the beach today but rather than schlepping the camera and MoCo gear I decided to try the timelapse feature of the GoPro Hero 3+. This was shot at 12MP with one photo per 10 seconds. Running on one battery I forgot to remove the LCD so ‘only’ got 568 images. Long enough for some 20 odd seconds. Gotta love the sea snails ripping around on the branches during the High to Low tide transition.

I used Lightroom and LRTimelapse plug in to edit and render the video.
