And the Trip Down

What goes up,
must come down
(or so the saying goes)
And we needed to come down...
since we don't have a cabin up there,
and since it was just a trip and it was time to head home.
Despite my making it up
and my immense joy at doing so,
I knew we should try another way down...
so we did.
Of course coming down a mountain,
the road involved a lot of beautiful curves and winding roads,

signs like this,
and road grades of about 17% in at least 2 places
it was a lot easier on me then the road up had been
and still very, very pretty
And as I sit here typing...
I'm thinking when will we go back?
Because, despite the fear, I really want to!
Blessings on your travels,

Oh, it sounds like you should go back, because it sounds like you really enjoyed yourself. I love those winding roads. They often have a lot of mystery and romance :) :) I'm not sure why I find windy roads with lots of trees ro mantic...but I do :) :) Have a great Labor Day weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

There IS something mysterious about winding roads with trees--you just never know what is around the next bend! It might reveal a spectacular vista that takes your breath away, a beautiful mountain stream rushing over moss covered rocks or ???
You just never know:)
