Driving Journey: Day 1: Bend, Oregon

I stayed overnight in Bend. It's a lovely little community with a great number of fantastic restaurants and microbreweries.

Driving Journey: Day 1: Mount Hood

Much of the top half of Highway 97 was very pleasant but uneventful. However, I couldn't resist capturing this image of Mount Hood.

Driving Trip: Day 1: Washington State

Having never driven through central Oregon before, that was one of my goals for this trip. To get there I first had to head down to Yakima, Washington in order to link up with Highway 97.

Last Meal in Seattle

Before hitting the road I had breakfast with Melissa, her sister, and her family. They chose the Portage Bay Cafe, a place I highly recommend. They have a self-serve berry bar where you can add your own toppings to your pancakes and waffles. Yum!

Final Day in Seattle: The Deer

On the morning I was preparing to leave Seattle a beautiful deer decided to have breakfast in Mike's overgrown garden. Some of these photos are mine, some were taken by Mike.
