|I believe we got farther than this- off to that clump of trees to the right|
To the Mountain!!
|Look Mom, we got this close|
|Well isn't this a crappy phone camera picture|
Our plan was to have lunch at the Timberline Lodge after hiking around, but we opted out of that and had lunch at a cute little place that was down the mountain a ways in Government Camp.... Adorable and yummy and we ate outside in the sun and it was cold and warm at the same time.
|I had a BUNCH of unedited photos from Portland!!|
|It was just breathtaking|
It has been a number of months since I have been there, so as that goes, you forget things. The terrain was rocky where we were (um, and snowy as I said) but really not hard to walk on. I had a ton of folks giving me ideas where to go to find the most amazing pictures, but that wasn't exactly the intent of the trip. I took my camera along and all, but it wasn't the sole purpose. I loved sitting on the porch behind the hotel and watching the spring skiers and people who had hiked up to the summit earlier that day return. Or maybe they stayed over night, I don't really know. Trying to absorb the moments and have them stay with you is hard when you travel, but sitting down and watching everything is the way to go occasionally.
|This is where I could have used a different lens....|
|SUSHI Asparagus roll! In other news, I always eat my sushi with chopsticks now! The Mad-BFF will be proud!|

Wednesday was the last day we spent in Portland, Thursday was travel day to the Pacific Ocean and we stayed in a cool little place called Rockaway Beach.... More on that to come.
So as I kick back in my mind to that lovely rest we took staring at the mountain, a little chilly and a little tired- I prepare to edit my Pacific Ocean photos.... because I apparently did not earlier in the summer. Silly girl.
Just another way to experience the joys of my summer travels
