One of the most truly beautiful gifts anyone has ever given to me was made by the multi-talented Dia Calhoun. (She creates art! Writes fantasy! And verse! And fights off cougars!) A few weeks before I left for China last summer, she and Lorie Ann Grover met me in Winthrop--the setting for North of Beautiful.
They spirited me to Dia's favorite fishing hole...where Dia presented me with the official North of Beautiful geocache! Not only did she create a cache--stuffing it with keepsakes and symbols from my book, but she had scoped out a site for the cache, too.
We were giggling as we took the coordinates... N 48° 08.290 W 120° 01.022.
Your mission: Go to the Methow Valley. You won't be sorry. And now can you find the cache?
Today I am grateful for friends who know my heart.
