View from my childhood home



Five years ago today was the last time I visited my childhood home up in Welches OR (which is at the base of Mt Hood, about an hr east of Gresham). My dad had sold the house, and I made it a point to go up with my camera to take photos of some of the things I remembered the most. This was the view from our front room window.

Knockout landscape. Good when your childhood view remains. Not many of us can say that.

Gorgeous photo!
I grew up in Oregon and am familiar with many of the places in the pictures on your blog. I'll have to come back here when I'm feeling a little homesick!
So the rhodies are in bloom there now?

How lovely. It is amazing that it hasn't changed - most places have. Mt. Hood is a glorious place ~ Oregon has a special aura!

Wow - I can't imagine growing up with that view - and it's still there!!

I was born in London, and moved out to a fast-growing village when I was ten. Not much of anything remain.

How peaceful that view is - it's great that you went back to take pictures. :)
