The move to Oregon was an intense activity that cut into my photo journeys for a while. Catherine and I did some short exploratory trips to the coast and up to Mt. Hood. We also had fun exploring the Portland area.
Our first extended road trip was in March when we traveled across Oregon and down into Nevada, then across to Arizona. Spent a week visiting Sarah Boon in Phoenix and a few days in Sedona. On the way home we visited Mike and Kate Bally at Moose Lodge in Park City, Utah.
April was devoted to a second road trip with Karen and Todd Gibbs when we traveled to Lake Tahoe, Death Valley and Yosemite. A great two weeks of beautiful scenery, photography, off-road travel, biking in the Alabama Hills and being with great friends.
May, we headed to Norway where we got on a quasi cruise ship/freighter and sailed north up the coast of Norway. We made almost 34 port visits that ended above the Arctic Circle at the border with Russia. On our way home we spent a few days in Copenhagen.
June, we stayed close to home with a short visit along the Oregon Coast and a trip back to Seattle.
