Carol Here: After driving for 5 straight days we finally have something to look at - TREEEEES!!! Like real trees, trees over 10 feet high. Add to that, or rather, take away about 20 degrees in temperature, and you have Oregon. Well, the pretty stuff started in Northern California (on I-5) but got going good in Oregon. Here we are stopped at a rest area:
And though it's still summer back in Texas, here in Oregon the trees are already dropping their leaves.
One thing I am very happy about is restarting my rock collection. I had hundreds of rocks collected over many years and many parts of the country. They were all buried in the rubble. So here are the first 3 rocks of my new collection!
And Jacob is proud to start his new blackberry collection. If you eat your whole collection does it still count as a collection?
