Rolling on a River

All of our road trips to Oregon start and end with the Columbia River since it forms the southern border of Washington State. And so it was this week – we managed to get a few days away to Oregon. We spent our first… Continue Reading “Rolling on a River”

Finding Pink on a Weekend Road Trip

Pink is the theme of this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge and I found some on our weekend getaway. We stopped by Mt. Vernon in the Skagit Valley and I was reminded this is Tulip Country. I love to visit the tulip fields when… Continue Reading “Finding Pink on a Weekend Road Trip”

Glorious Tulips at Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival!

Happy, happy to have stopped by the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon last month, on the way home from our road trip! That’s Mt. Hood in the background in case you wondered.

Road Trip – Part 4 San Francisco!

In my last post on our Road Trip I left you in the tunnel where San Francisco loomed large! We’d already traveled the Oregon Coast, through the Redwoods and California’s Coast to get here. I honestly had my doubts about stopping in San Francisco; it… Continue Reading “Road Trip – Part 4 San Francisco!”

Road Trip Part 3 – Highlights of the California Coast -Lighthouses, Wildlife, History and Other gems!

Road Trip Part 1 – Oregon Coast!

There’s nothing like a road trip to chase away the covid blues and there’s no better way to start than with donuts and coffee. It would be our first real vacation in over a year – at least the first vacation more than a… Continue Reading “Road Trip Part 1 – Oregon Coast!”

Home Again, Home Again from a Wonderful Road Trip

You may have noticed I was off the grid for the last week or so – then again, maybe you didn’t as I tried to stop by occasionally when internet was available. (You wouldn’t think there’d be a problem with cell service in the… Continue Reading “Home Again, Home Again from a Wonderful Road Trip”

The Best of Multnomah Falls

I promised I’d be back to show you Multnomah Falls, the most popular of all the waterfalls in the Columbia Gorge. It was our last stop before heading back home, and it was a perfect and rain-free fall day. At 611 feet, Multnomah Falls… Continue Reading “The Best of Multnomah Falls”

Waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge

No trip to the Columbia Gorge is complete without stopping by the many waterfalls that line the Historic Scenic Highway. Last week we traveled to Oregon and did just that – safely and before new Covid travel restrictions were put into place. The weather… Continue Reading “Waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge”
