fashionable

Pretty...

So, we're up in Portland... barely dodging a series of storms to get up here. It's raining here, and it might snow later where we are in Troutdale... nice place with private jacuzzi tubs in room & lotsa space.

The drive was very beautiful indeed... snow all over Mt. Shasta region and the cascades up to Mt. Ashland. Went into Dunsmuir, where cars were snowed in and every house was bedecked with snow. Lovely, lovely place. Snows on Mt. Ashland area were comparatively light, but beautiful... looked almost violet the way the last light of the day shone on it. Took lotsa pictures, but those will have to wait until we get back.

Will be back on the 26th, unless more storms come in and trap us up here for a little while. No rush, however. Pretty nice here, thanks. See ya soon(ish)...
