Frank Cone | Along for the Ride

Photographer Frank Cone shot this image early June 6 at Walla Walla Point Park. Here's how he described the scene: "As I walked out to the bench I noticed the merganser and chicks sitting on a log, once they spotted me they immediately moved into the water. That's when the merganser chicks started moving on the back of the Mother merganser. This was kind of a bucket list shot for me. I followed them down the riverfront for about 100 yards until they drifted out of sight." (Frank Cone photo)

The horse trailer carried my old Epworth upright piano which I was bringing to my daughter in Leavenworth, a seven-hour trip from Missoula. After unloading the 700-pound behemoth in her small residence, I headed five miles east to Peshastin along Highway 2.

Achieving lift: WVC grad seeks a career in flight

Christina Marion’s first experience with flight was in a glider. Gliders have no engine. They are towed into the air by another aircraft, separated, and then the gliders must achieve lift — or not — and hopefully land at the airport.
