More Oregon/California trip pics: Redwoods

 My husband, Jon, takes most of the pictures. Once in a while we take one of him so we know he was there with us.

                                                         Our family tree, minus Jon

 Notice how he's straining to lift me? I think I put on a few pounds on our trip. All that good restaurant food.
                                                                The whole fam.
 I used to cut logs like this off the trail with a bow saw when I worked for the forest service in Washington. Well, maybe they weren't quite this big.

  1. I always wanted to drive the coast highway from Washington to San Diego. Maybe when I publish my first novel I'll give myself that as a reward.

  2. I also learned that it was my browser at work that was preventing me from commenting, so I'll be more active now...

  3. Great to hear from you on my blog. Yes, you've got to drive the the coast from WA. to CA. when you publish a book. You'll love it. It's beautiful.
