I am sitting in a very quiet hotel room looking at the cloudy sky outside. Of course we are no longer in the gorgeous sunny pacific northwest, but located instead somewhere in the midwest. It's dreary, and it matches everyone's mood. But with any luck, this is the last time I will be making this drive east for a long time. Or at least that is my hope.
On the other hand, the drive below is one I hope to do a lot more. We drove up to Paradise and continued around the mountain. Talk about gorgeous!! Is there any place more beautiful? I haven't found it yet..
