HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN ....

We went to Wenatchee to see this special kid and her sister and parents and the watchdog Boomer! This one, with Grandma Bunny Lady, once had a rabbit named Scooter and they have been on these pages in the past. Scooter died quite awhile ago from the parasite disease that makes a rabbit wobble and tip over .. it was a sad and hard time for all of us. Recently this kid had serious back surgery for scoliosis she has been dealing with for several years. We were so happy to see her recovering well and smiling ... 4 weeks ago we saw her a couple days after the surgery and she was a sad sack :<( ...
We drove from sea-level west of the mountains on Highway US 2 over Stevens Pass (4,000 plus feet). Here was a beautiful waterfall .. it is a gorgeous drive. Listen folks ... we bunns were behaved for Friend of the Animals and happy to see our real keepers too, and we thought they would show lots of pictures of us .... hmmmm ... well, tomorrow, after we get over being happy to see them, we will thump plenty!
Here is the Wenatchee River flowing eastward out of the Cascade Mtns on into the Columbia at Wenatchee.
Here is the Columbia River from the Wenatchee house. It is flowing southward (left to right) and the Wenatchee enters on the extreme left of the picture. There are so many dams, the Columbia is basically a bunch of very long, narrow lakes!
Back westward up the Wenatchee river valley are many pear orchards. The entire area is full of orchards of all sorts, Wenatchee is the Apple Capital of the world! Hot dry country irrigated by the waters of the Columbia. Cold in winter ... good for fruit trees.
It was 99 degrees in the shade .. but it is a DRY heat :<) .. and, these guys have air conditioning and a pool!!!
It was a good trip and great to see the kid doing so well, including her Mom and Dad and lil Sis. Now we are glad to be home. Lord love a buncha bunnies! Thanks to Friend of the Animals from Reno Rabbits for great care of our precious ones left at home.

I had that same surgery for scoliosis when I was about her age. Tell her to hang in there! It's a long recovery but she'll feel better soon:)

Your welcome, and I loved taking care of them!

Glad to hear surgery went well, she is looking good.

Sounds like a great trip for all concerned. Wishes for fast healing to that special kid. You sure took the scenic route, wow, beautiful! And you're beautiful too, Zoey.

Scoliosis can be a real challenge. I was lucky enough to have it in mild form as a child, and could be corrected through exercises. Good luck to her and fingers crossed for a good recovery!

Welcome back from your trip and thanks for the well wishes for Hugo! The pics looks very special, I wish I could travel to see all those places, but I am lucky enough to travel throughout Europe that much. And then again, I don't like to be too long away from Hugo and Miss Eve. I am sure you and Bunny Lady missed your furries a lot!

Yea for getting better after surgery! She's looking healthy and happy!

The pictures are beautiful! The Columbia River runs right past our city. It was fun to see pictures of it before it gets here on it's way to the Pacific ocean!

Glad you had a nice trip!
