Latourell Falls

After a stop at the Crown Point Vista House the route back down to I-84 took us by Latourell Falls so we made a brief stop there. Not quite as impressive as the Snoqualmie Falls back home, but lovely just the same.

Columbia River; Crown Point

Heading back to North Bend, we veered a little east to stop at Crown Point overlooking the Columbia River.  It’s such a fabulous view, especially on a day like this.

Mt. Hood, Timberline Lodge

It’s been many years since Trisha and I first visited Mt. Hood so we decided to make it part of our itinerary on our return from Crater Lake and Ashland.  We were gifted another spectacular day and enjoyed the fabulous vistas and a yummy lunch at Timberline Lodge. I’m so impressed by the craftsmanship in these monumental WPA projects.  It’s inspiring to see what people can accomplish with the right motivation and leadership. Thank you FDR.

Oregon Shakespeare Festival – “The Tempest”

I wasn’t sure what to expect but I thought we had to see at least one play at the famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland.  We saw “The Tempest” and it was absolutely superb. The acting and the staging were just wonderful.  We are already talking about going back for several days next year.

Trisha’s sister, Lisa, accompanied us on our trek to southern Oregon where we visited Crater Lake, making number 24 of 60 on our list of National Parks we hope to visit. It was a perfect day with temperature around 80 degrees, a slight breeze and beautiful blue skies.

Echinacea_682As we approach the final days of Summer, Trisha’s Echinaceas continue to show off their glorious colors.  Even these white ones are spectacular.
