On Location: OREGON
I took off on Wednesday for a short trip through Oregon with friends. Just upriver of the Hanford Reach on the Columbia, we saw a few white pelicans on their way to breeding grounds in both Canada and the US. I just love this part of Washington and Oregon—while it is only a few hours from the population centers of Seattle and Portland, it has a wonderful feel of solitude. A colder, wetter spring has come late to the region, and there is still lots of snow on the mountains, which is a lovely backdrop to the rural landscape.
