An Adventure



Whenever we go anywhere, I always ask my son, "Do you want to go on an adventure?" At his age, everything is an adventure, even going to the mailbox. But this past weekend we went on his longest adventure yet, a drive east up the Columbia River Gorge to The Dalles to visit friends. The views out there are so very different from the lush green ones we enjoy here. The Dalles is just coming into the more desert-like areas of Oregon. They still have pine trees, but also are very dry already. Their days are hotter and nights colder than we have in the Portland Metro area.

This view was taken on a winding road above The Dalles. I had to stop and photograph the old barn! I will post a few more photos from our adventure later this week.

This is a great shot - I love the composition! It is amazing how our geography changes so quickly when we drive a short distance away.

I love, absolutely LOVE, when children are little and everything is an adventure : ) That is my favorite. Glad you could get away and have a lovely trip.

So that's what it looks like out there. Always saw references to The Dalles but didn't know what it looked like.

A lovely composition but worried about the bald areas those patches need some replanting. I wish all of us do our share in planting trees wherever we are. The vegetation is very green, which means they are still enjoying the conditions!

I do like photos of old barns. Nice scene.

The barn looks quaint and gives an interesting perspective to the photo. Nice

Beautiful! I haven't been over that way for a long time, but it is pretty. Oregon is so varied and full of scenery surprises.

Whenever we take an unexpected day trip the rally cry here is also "Adventure!" and off we go!
Very nice!

That's a lovely scene. Always wanted to visit that neck of the woods, but haven't made it there yet. Someday, though, I'll have my own Oregon adventure.
