We're on our way . . .

I got maybe four hours of sleep last night, which is better than none, I guess, and enjoyed a very nice ride up through California (hot and dry, really) and into Oregon (warm but not dry -- trees and flowing water everywhere).  Our first stop was

Granzella's along Interstate 5 for breakfast -- after leaving home just a little after six.  Quick service, good food.  Then on to Roseburg, OR, and along the way, we passed

Mt. Shasta! Yay -- snow-capped mountain in July!  You would have laughed to see me trying to take a picture of it -- going 70 mph, dang trees getting in the way, me fumbling with the focus on my cell phone (my actual camera was in the bottom of my duffle bag), and the fact that my hands aren't really steady, all added up to a whole bunch of el crapola pictures.  But as always the "delete" button saves the day.

So tomorrow, I'm up for 1) being a little less tired, I hope, and 2) enjoying a lovely ride through the Pacific Northwest, one of my favorite places.  Maybe we can get some actual photo ops and I can take some decent pictures, not going at 70 mph.

Next stop:  Vancouver!  Yay!

Enjoy your trip, your visiting some of my favorite spots on that side of the Cascade range. Love the shot of Mt. Shasta!

Thanks -- you wouldn't want to get too close to it so that you'd see how fuzzy it is --
