So last week Jim and I went to Oregon, which is why you might not have seen us around. The reason for the trip was that a close friend of Jim's was getting married, but we decided that since we had never been out West, that we would go a few days early to do some exploring. And we sure did have a lot of fun doing that!
Here's a few pics:
Our base of operations was Portland. From there we took the 3 1/2 hour drive up to Seattle. Here's a view of downtown Seattle with Mt. Rainer in the background: http://www.aplaceformyphotos.com/blo...ves/Or1-59.jpg
One of the highlights of the trip was our visit to Crater Lake National Park. Crater Lake is unbelievable and photos don't really do it justice. Here's me there: http://www.aplaceformyphotos.com/blo...es/Or2-104.jpg
We also took a ride to the coast. It was sunny and gorgeous until we got to the coast. As often happens on the Oregon coast there was a thick fog that rolled in as the day went on, but we still got a taste of how beautiful the coast is. This through the mist that's starting to from near Cannon Beach: http://www.aplaceformyphotos.com/blo...ves/Or3-27.jpg
The wedding took place in Hood River, which is in the Columbia River Gorge: http://www.aplaceformyphotos.com/blo...ves/Or4-14.jpg
On our way back from Hood River to Portland, we checked out Mt. Hood: http://www.aplaceformyphotos.com/blo...ves/Or5-54.jpg
Sure was a great trip!
