Spring Things

We've been enjoying spring here in the Pacific NorthWest with a few road trips. Here a just a few pictures of our adventures.
A sunny yellow lichen covered wall in the Columbia River Gorge.

Our Spring Break took us to Central Oregon for 3 fun days. This is Fort Rock out
of Bend, Oregon. I had a wonderful time hiking the trails and taking in the vistas.
We also stopped in Prineville, Oregon to eat at our favorite 50's dinner and of course I had to walk around the courthouse.....a favorite of mine.

On our way to hunt for Oregon sunstones out side of Plush, Oregon. It was a beautiful 60 degree day!
On a sunny Sunday in January we took a quick trip to the Oregon Coast for a dinner of Dunengess Crab and to gaze upon the Pacific Ocean. Even though is was sunny, the wind was blowing so we skipped the beach walk and opted to count whale spouts on the horizon. And yes we did see a few.
