This is for Gingko:

Thursdays and Fridays, they still do the chicken dinner. It's in Newhalem now though...could've sworn it was always there, but that's where it be for the last several years.

So good news! 9/11 didn't ruin chicken!
Thanks. Used to be at Diablo but as I might have written above, that large space was razed. With the incline elevator shut down, and no place now in Diablo big enough to host the dinners, yes, the chicken dinners have moved to Newhalem. But it looks like the cruise on Diablo Lake is a different tour now with a meal at the North Cascades Environmental Institute on the shores of the lake. In either case, both are great experiences. We Seattle residents own Seattle City Light. And it's the 50th anniversary of North Cascades National Park. So get out and enjoy!

August 2018 in Western Washington featured multiple episodes of wildfire smoke and hazy conditions, but there were a number of breaks.

Researcher says wolf population likely larger than estimates
The number of wolves in Washington state is likely much higher than previously thought, according to a University of Washington researcher who spent two years studying the animals using scat-sniffing dogs.

Samuel Wasser said his dogs detected 95 wolves in one area of Stevens and Pend Oreille counties, in the rural northeast corner of the state, during the 2016-17 season. That approached the total number of wolves wildlife officials estimated for the entire state.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife a year ago estimated Washington had a minimum of 122 wolves, grouped in at least 22 packs, and 14 successful breeding pairs.

Wasser told a state Senate committee last week that it's possible the population of wolves is closer to 200 animals.
