My Oregon

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)

Joan - that was so sweet to post those photos just for me! You knew I needed a good reason to stay here in Oregon... considering you didn't have a photo of Portland in the rain!
