We had a wonderful potluck dinner served in the rec hall here at the park. About 50 people attended and had plenty of food. We had great weather with sunshine and 71 degrees.

Alpine Artwalk

November 18 and 19th were this years date for Alpine’s Artwalk. This is a annual event that attracts thousands to town. Lots of art, a parade, live music, and more. We went with our friends from Marathon and had a great time. More about Artwalk HERE.

All that walking made us tired…some more tired than others.

We now understand why so many people come to Alpine for Artwalk every year. It was great and had something for everyone.

It’s been pretty rainy the last few days so when it cleared up for a couple of hours today I was off to find some photo subjects.

This is the view back towards Alpine from the South.

It started to cloud up some more and was raining about 15 minutes after I got back.
