My first birthday trip brought me west...
up into our coast range,
along creeks and rivers
and to a favorite restaurant.
And it also brought me to one of my favorite beaches--
where my hubby and I shared some sweet childhood memories
and later made new ones in a mountain valley he had never been to.
And then last week brought us here--
just because we're still having beautiful autumn weather
and are trying to savor every minute of it before our REAL autumn begins.
well yesterday's journey brought me west again--
to a place I consider the 'WEST',
gorgeous central Oregon...
land of sagebrush + juniper,
rivers, lakes + waterfalls,
mountains + buttes.
land of past memories,
a real feeling of the 'Old West'
and ASPEN--beautiful, wonderful, unforgettable aspen.
It was a great place to celebrate another year;
it was a great place to remember.
And later this week,
IF blogger photo upload cooperates...
I will share some of my trip with you.
And if blogger doesn't cooperate?
Well I am considering some changes:(
friendly cat at Camp 18--
a very well known restaurant in Elsie.
Fort Stevens--Peter Iredale Beach.
Somewhere along the central Oregon coast
(OK, I know where but I am keeping it a secret for now)
