A more appropriate title would be “the trail to oregon”, but that doesn’t have quite the same ring.
As previously mentioned, we drove over 2,000 miles in two days.
We drove through or brushed seven states: Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and eventually Oregon.
I woke up the first day here in Oregon, to the sun rising over the mountains, it was so incredibly beautiful. I hope we are able to find a house with a view.
We spent the first couple of days exploring the immediate area. We visited Phillip’s work, drove through the local neighborhoods, went to “Dutch Bros Coffee” (twice), played at a couple of beautiful parks, took in the sights, got a YMCA membership and went swimming, went to the library, and things of that nature.
We may venture out to Crater Lake this weekend and if so, will have some spectacular pictures to share I am sure.
But for now, we are here, settling in and LOVING the scenery. Oregon is spectacularly beautiful. Period.
found a lot we should build on, with this for a view 🙂
I tried to get a picture but it doesn’t really capture it fully
hope we don’t burn up all of our breaks right away 🙂
(notice the “K” on the mountain)
the kids were enthralled by the geese
And this was the best we could do
And please feel free to start sending dates of when you all will be coming to visit! 🙂
