I live in the western part of Oregon where it is lush and green year round. I can go one hundred miles west and be at the seashore....or I can go about sixty miles east and be on the edge of desert country! If I keep going I will be in central Oregon which is desert with beautiful formations. Below are some pictures from our beautiful central Oregon taken from from an ultra light.
Enjoy!! (consider this almost Wordless Wednesday--only it is Friday)

Doesn't this just make you want to break out singing, "How Great Thou Art"
I'm a Gram, a mother to many, a firm believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, a retired teacher and social worker, and a happy, content person, trying to be always "thankful in all things!"
Currently I keep busy with the grandchildrens' visits, a weekly Bible Study with the ladies in my church, visiting shut-ins, having lunch with friends, scrapbooking, making cards, reading and enjoying a wonderful retirement for the past 22 years!
