traveled, back home now

I got back from Oregon yesterday. I went out for a small family gathering.

I am intensely attracted to the landscape there. Depending on your starting point (mine was Portland), you can reach mountains, deserts, rivers and the Pacific ocean; all within a few hours driving time.

Driving anywhere in Oregon involves hilly (understatement) and winding roads, but the payoffs are incredible views. Towering Douglas firs dominate the roadsides (except when the roadside is a stone wall, then whatever can grab on grows with the water that seeps seemingly everywhere).

Oregon also has a lot of microbreweries. I traveled there by myself, so I had ample opportunity (not being saddled with the kids) to sample the local beers.

Go sometime. You'll love it.
