Tom and I have been wanting to get out of Utah for quite awhile now. Nevada doesn't count... that is practically Utah. So even though Tom is out of work we decided to pack up and have a relaxing vacation. We drove up to Portland, Oregon to see our friends, Chrissy, Seth, and Kimmie. My sister, Valerie, and her family were also vacation up there. So we spent a day with them exploring the coast. We had fun going to the Aquarium, the cold and windy beach, and the Tillamook Factory! It is a very, very boring drive up thru Idaho. We did have an adventure in the Blue Mountains just inside of Oregon when we got pounded with a snowstorm complete with thick fog! Snow... in June?!!!! I was a nervous wreck but Tom got us thru safely.
Oregon was so beautiful, so green. Tom and I had so much fun! Chrissy, Seth, and Kimmie took us to Multnomah Falls. We hiked to the top. That is sure not an easy hike. But it is one of the most beautiful places I have seen and well worth the effort! It was wonderful to see the Davenports again. It is fun to see Chrissy as a wife and doting mom! It was a wonderful trip. I will try to include some pictures soon... I am still learning all this high tech stuff.
