Every year cows need to be moved from the valley bottom where they winter and have their calves to the public lands on the state wildlife area where they spend the summer. Some ranchers find the easiest way to do this is to have an old-fashioned cattle drive right down the county road, through town and up the state highway on a Sunday morning. Yesterday was cool and clear – good for moving cows and making pictures. Lots of people knew about this ahead of time and were parked in good vantage points to see the cows pass through Twisp. Evidently this is a slow time of year for entertainment around here.

 

 

The excitement builds as the cows approach town

I think Twisp needs some more work on its sign ordinance

I wonder if TwispWorks was looking to get their lawn fertilized

The Merc Playhouse in Twisp hosts an open mic from time to time. It’s a great opportunity for musicians to perform in a professional setting with great acoustics and good lighting and also a comfortable audience. The Merc underwent a remodel last year and while I thought it was good before, it’s even better now. There is more seating and the acoustics have been improved. If you are nearby, I highly suggest that you take it in as a participant or an audience member.
