Late Summer Highland Games
Another page has turned on the calendar and my favourite time of year is upon us. In an ideal world, I'd be spending waking hours exploring (personally) uncharted territory in Scotland. Such as things are, participating in the Spokane Highland Games, Spokane, WA, and Bitterroot Valley ScottishIrishFestival , Hamilton, MT have been incredibly rewarding, uplifting experiences and excellent excuses to spend time outdoors and a welcome break from routine demands and labours. I cannot thank the organizers of such events enough for all the time and energy they put in to bring these valuable celebrations of culture together! Luckily, I will also have a vendor booth at the Kelso Highland Games in Kelso, WA this coming weekend, 11 and 12 Sept., so one more good chance to enjoy one of Scotland's great traditions, the Games, as Autumn advances.
