The sun sets on fog and clouds in the Wenatchee Valley in late December in this view from Badger Mountain Road above East Wenatchee.

Former and present Eastmont High School students gather for a pickup game of futsal in November 2020 at the court at the Eastmont Community Park in East Wenatchee. The artificial turf field, smaller than a soccer field, opened up this summer after two years of planning led by East Wenatchee resident Alex Cruz. It's surrounded by fencing, but open to the public. An official futsal ball is smaller, heavier and doesn't bounce as high as a normal soccer ball.

From the parking lot, a new neighborhood park is laid out north of 9th Street in East Wenatchee in May 2021. At that time, the park was closed to the public, but should be ready for fun in 2022.
