Blue Monday ~Totem Poles

It’s hard to believe that just a week ago the skies were so clear and blue. We are in a overcast, gray, and wet pattern right now.

 

We have the opportunity to see many Totem Poles in the Pacific Northwest because of our Northwest Coast Native populations. They are carved from large trees, generally from Western Red Cedar. These Totem Poles are featured at the Evergreen Fair Grounds in Monroe, Washington. If you are interested in reading about the different types of  Totem Poles google it and enjoy the history…

 

Have you ever used the expression low man on the totem pole? Usually the expression means someone who is the lowest ranking in a group or organization. The thing I learned today in reading some history about Totem Poles is that the order of the faces carved on a totem pole have no universal significance.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
