Saturday, we drove over the mountain to the Willamette Valley to spend the day with our mothers.
The changing landscape of our road trip:
Leaving home - 3000' elevation, juniper forest
Pine forests at 4800' elevation
Fir forests - 2500'
Stopping for a break at Detroit Lake - 1600'
(not sure what the cross is for)
Deciduous trees on the valley floor - 500'
Leaving the Silverton countryside on the way home...a rainbow
