Great looking souvenirs, Gary. Made with love so they are more valuable. Lovely photos of Oregon. How many miles on that car altogether? bp

We did a bit over 5,000 miles. Included a couple days where we backtracked due to rain and fog to see what we missed.

Wow. You guys put the miles on! Fun, though. I always enjoy the long distance drives.

Sunny although cool here today (relatively for us). Catching up on some chores. bp

More from the Oregon Coast. Most of the coast trip was in rain and fog. We did still manage to see a few sights.

Mornin'. 51°f, partly sunny wind out of the SSW @ 11.5MPH.

Drove across the new RR intersection this morning. Looks like they have most of the SS lines laid on the second side and are hauling in and packing down the roadbed.

We stopped at Mount St Helens. Twice. The first day the fog/clouds were so thick we couldn't see the mountain at all. We could barely find the car in the parking lot. :lol: We went back a second time and still didn't have a clear shot, but a little better anyway. Ranger said, this time of year, getting a clear day is not an easy task.
The last shot is a river that's been redirected by the ash. Ash was carried downstream and is redeposited wherever the water slows down. This is still happening to this day & a problem for the corps of engineers dealing with it.

34°f on this late Friday morning.
We also went to Mount Rainier, but ran into the same cloudy weather along with some snow.

Seems they had some water pipe issues.

We also attempted to driver up Mount Hood. Same result. Cloudy, snow, blowing snow. We made it to the Ski lift, but then headed back down before the weather got any worse. After all we were in a 2WD car and most everyone else had 4WD trucks and SUV's.
We did get to see Mount Hood from a distance the next day when the skies cleared some.
