420 Miles in 24 Hours

The Husband and I got in our car on Sunday morning with our goal being a relaxing 24 hour mini-vacation and indeed, we got exactly that. I thought I'd share a few pictures from our great excursion to Bend via the Columbia Gorge and then home through the Cascades. I never tire of the beauty that is Oregon! No recipes this week. I'm taking a respite from the kitchen.

There were little creeks and mighty rivers.



There were spectacular waterfalls and towers up to the clouds.



There were salmon fighting the current to go home upriver and The Husband fighting the snow through the mountains to deliver us home safely!

Now I see what you were up to when we "passed like two ships in the night"!! Was that the Bonneville Dam fish ladder?? One of my favorite places to take a break between Portland and here. Looks like we'll be headed that way for another wedding in May...
