|*Breakfast fire along the Grande Ronde River before we pulled out*|
I mean I grew up down on the desert where a Saguaro Cactus was the tallest thing around... and they're scattered far and wide... but not much shelter... and I think that's what it may be... the idea just never come clear to me before...
Out on the plains... a body can be seen for miles... It's like... a soldier... out in that open country, feels kind of exposed... and then he takes fire, and what does he do?... he runs for his life... straining to reach the safety of that Tree Line!
Maybe that revelation come to me 'cause of the way we came down the Gorge of the Mighty Columbia River... Off to the east it's dry and open...
|*wind mills and ranches in the dry country along the Columbia*|
|*all that water and it's still DRY along the Columbia*|
|*Stonehenge War Memorial*|
|*Dedication on the Altar Stone*|
|*Memorial to WW II, Korea and Vietnam Veterans*|
|*Motorcycle along the Columbia*|
... and you see some guys that make you say; "Not a Freakin' Chance!"
|*Wind Surfers on the Columbia River... in OCTOBER!"|
|*Columbia River Sunset*|
|*Sunrise Spider web*|
|*Stormy Morning along the Columbia*|
|*Night Camp in Home Valley, along the Mighty Columbia*|
One thing I know... and I rediscover every time I come back here... I freakin' love Washington and Oregon from the Mountains to the Sea!
Hoping to see the Pacific this afternoon... not sure we'll get there... but soon enough... we'll hit the spot where Lewis and Clarke did...
Seeing and learning... and starting to figure it out... Maybe... :o)
