Lyman, WA photos

I had a great time taking a break to take some photos in Lyman, WA. Particularly I enjoyed the rustic landscape and looking for interesting textures that we might overlook on a brisk walk.

I’m always amazed how just having a camera in hand can change our perspective for what the eye notices in it’s surroundings.

A note from my friend about Lyman, WA city hall:

This building was originally the Birdsey Minkler home (called the “Minkler Mansion”), built in 1891. Prior to living in Lyman, Minkler originally settled in “Birdsview” (the town was named after him), about 10 miles east of Lyman. Minkler was the first postmaster in Birdsview and is considered the original settler. The Upriver area is full of wonderful history. Glad you have gotten to see and experience some of it, Conrad.
