The day before leaving Oregon I visited one of my favorite places in the east end of the Columbia Gorge. The day was foggy and cool, kind of a quiet good bye to Oregon for a while.

Travelling the 1500 miles home to Oregon from Arizona is quite a treat for the eyes. From early morning in the lettuce fields to the trees to shade those on the road to burning the fields where rice has been harvested... I never get tired of watching the scenery go by.

Living in Arizona almost guarantees that you will have visitors in the winter when "all those other states" have less than perfect weather. Our latest visitors got to explore some fun desert sites... check 'em out!! (And come visit if you'd like to see more.)

Returning to Arizona brings a special treat to the eye: skies that fire up almost every evening!

This has been a great summer... I decided this was a year to "ExploreOregon". East, west, city, country, mountains, valleys - what an awesome & varied place to drag my camera. Here is a peek at the places I visited.

I set out on a journey back to Oregon and my camera naturally followed me. I loved the rocks and hills of Utah, but fell in love all over again with the beautiful spring green of Oregon in May. Rain continued to "green up" the woods and that was just fine with me!

Been here a while

Do I have a favorite place to go for pictures? Well, let's see... any place inside, outside, in the green, in the desert. These are from Oregon... maybe in the top 2 places in my heart. I am returning very shortly to Oregon so stay tuned for more.
