The other day, after I had gotten over the excitement of snow at our place,
I asked myself...
I wonder what a vineyard looks like in snow?
So, a friend and I took off to explore that area of Oregon,
after Japanese food, of course.
I try to make a trip here at least once a season because of the spectacular views.
you can see the Coast Range (and we know I love those mountains)
or the Cascade Mountains (and I love them too).
This photo, unless I got really turned around on the sometimes rough roads, should be of the Coast Range...and I believe that is the Tualatin Valley between the mountains and where my friend and I were.
Despite the cloud cover and my less than perfect photo,
it was really beautiful with all the snow.
As you can see below, the snow was hit and miss,
depending on where you were in this group of hills.
Nevertheless, it was a great trip and come later spring,
I will be back to find more of nature's treasure.
but it's time to work as my DH has promised me another trip this weekend if I can get a lot done today around the house
(he knows how to motivate me on dark, gloomy days like the one today.)
Lenten Blessings, Aimee
