Well ‘what a difference a day makes’ ……. we awoke this morning to bright sunshine, blue skies and it was warm enough to get the shorts back on!!!
As we would be passing Crater Lake again on our way to Portland we decided we should do a little detour to see if Si could take more Lake shots. This is the actual colour of the water, the photo has not been altered at all.
Well, the weather at the Lake was beautiful, such a change from yesterday, although at 8,000 feet the wind was a little chilly. So, Si got his shots and then we headed off for Portland. It all turned into an eight hour drive and when we got to Portland it was rush hour, so you can imagine what the traffic was like and to add to that there was a car breakdown and road works!!
We came to the conclusion that the whole of the US Army was on the move today as we passed lots and lots of army trucks on the way out of Crater Lake.
We couldn’t complain about the drive today as about six hours of it was through forests and forests of pine trees. There’s no shortage of wood in the US that’s for sure.
This is going to be short and sweet today as we are very tired and need to get our beauty sleep!!
More from Portland tomorrow!
