Oregon

I'm learning to find beauty in the desert... hard not to, when the nearby canyon is so spectacular.
But I miss the Willamette Valley....
look at all the green!

Oh, what a beautiful landscape! It makes me want to go climb one of the (relatively tiny) mountains in our area just for the view.

I have to agree with you that oregon is lovely, no matter what part you are in! where were those willammette valley pics taken? looks just like the blue river resevoir area!

The only thing they have in common is some evergreens and steep climbs! I can appreciate both for different reasons, but the greener land is a little more my speed.

Hi Charmaine,
Been a little busy the last several days so I just wanted to say hi!!
We all miss you on this side of the mountain. You would have enjoyed the shows today, lots of your "old" friends were out and about!!
JOY!

I agree that it takes a while to find the beauty in the desert. It can be done, though!
