Where Have I Been?

I see it has been a month since I posted! Wow! I have been busy with life and kids and work.  I have what I hope will be some great pictures of the last couple of weekends to post.  Two weekends ago Vicki and I took the kids camping up at the edge of the Olympic National Forest. Amazing!  We took a couple beautiful hikes, had campfires, ate s'mores and generally had a blast!  This past weekend Vicki and I were on our own and went to The Dalles, which is about an hour and a half east of Portland, and in an entirely different climate zone because it is on the other side of the mountains, and thus dessert-like. Amazingly beautiful scenery on the Columbia River Gorge - and I took lots of pictures.  On Saturday we saw petroglyphs, birds, a wonderful lake and ended the day with wine-tasting at a local winery, and some good food. 

I am about to leave on an overnight pre-inspection trip for work, so have to run. Hope to post some pictures soon.
