Mazama: January 16, 2019

By Erika Kar I first noticed him on the computer speaker. He thought he was camouflaged. And this is how we met. I laughed at him because I could see him. The speaker is black, but he was just a shade browner than true black. When I laughed at him, his funny little telescopic eyes looked...

Mazama: January 9, 2019

By Erika Kar It is always a treat when I see an email from my neighbor, Eric Burr, in my inbox. These emails always include a look into the natural world that is teeming with action all around us. While I love nature and am fairly aware, I don’t have the knowledge that he has. His...

Mazama: December 26, 2018

By Erika Kar By the time you read this, Christmas will be over. This is weird because I am sitting here writing it almost a week before Christmas. So, while I’d like to write some heartwarming holiday prose, it would come off as a little strange and perhaps confusing. Instead, let’s skip ahead to the New...

Mazama: December 19, 2018

By Erika Kar Sometimes things just seem to unexpectedly all come together. This is one of the small overlooked joys in life. For instance, you may have drawn your Aunt Edna’s name for the family’s Christmas gift exchange. Aunt Edna is very hard to shop for; her house is full to the ceiling with garage sale...

Mazama: December 12, 2018

By Erika Kar In case you have had your head buried in the snow (wait, what snow?), you are probably aware that Christmas is coming right up. And that means one thing, Christmas at the Very End of the Road held at the Mazama Store. This year, the popular event will be held on Sunday, Dec....

Mazama: December 5, 2018

By Erika Kar Here I sit, brokenhearted. Tried to write, but can’t get started. Mazama is a quiet spot, not much happens, I kid you not. When Sunday comes, as it always does, a column comes due and my head starts to buzz. I poke around, looking for news, when there is none, I then get...

Mazama: November 28, 2018

By Erika Kar I must have missed the memo last week. I see that my lovely Winthrop and Twisp counterparts both wrote about gratitude and thankfulness, while I wrote about the Mazama Store. So, in order to keep that thankful Thanksgiving vibe going, let’s talk about Thanksgiving. What were Mazamans doing over this nice long Thanksgiving...

Mazama: November 21, 2018

By Erika Kar The Mazama Store is the hub of Mazama. And their tagline of “A Little Bit of Everything Good” really does hold true. Need an avocado? Check. How about a mousetrap? Check. Looking for a beautiful gift for a friend? Check. What about some rosewater for an obscure recipe? Check.  Your car needs oil?...

Mazama: November 14, 2018

By Erika Kar For a sleepy November week, Mazama actually was hopping. Let’s start with the first elephant in the living room. Yes, you guessed it, the white stuff. Thursday was our first official snowfall, with Lost River receiving anywhere from 1 1/2 to 2 inches on the ground, depending on who you ask. Thursday was...

Mazama: November 7, 2018

By Erika Kar When Steve and Kim Bondi sold the North Cascades Base Camp to the Bush School two-ish years ago, there were a lot of changes for Mazama. Base Camp was just that for Mazama, a base camp for so many activities. One of the things that changed was the end of Soup Night. The...
