Spent the last few days on a no-pause road trip speeding along I-5. My dad was seeming to express his anxiety by trying to outrun every car on the road. I tried to take some photos out the window. These are from Oregon taken whizzing along Interstate 5.
Last Sunday we took an outing to get apricots in Eastern Washington. An almost annual trek. Almost because time goes so quickly that I miss the brief period when you can get them some years.
Our little trip took us through a lot of the landscapes of Washington State. From an island in Puget Sound, through the Cascade mountains to areas of Eastern Washington that are both fertile and arid. All beautiful, but each with its own personality.
Even though it was only a day trip the summer heat led us to leave the dogs at dad’s so they could have a day on the beach instead of a hot car ride. He lives on an island.
Here are a few from one year ago today, when we were walking between Carlisle and Crosby-on-Eden.
