Welcome to my world

Brian and I went for a short ride this morning, and were treated to an incredible view from the lane that leads to our house (click to biggify):That's Mt. Hood due east, the clouds streaming from its south side looking almost like an eruption. Between us, the lovely Willamette Valley, the "Eden at the end of the trail" to the weary settlers who came west. On our hill, acres of wine grapes have replaced many other crops like prunes, cherries, hazelnuts and timber.

I feel like we own a little piece of paradise here. It is not perfect, unlike God's Paradise, but it'll do for now. :-)

That's it today from . . .
