Washington And Oregon July 12-25

More photos from Washington and Oregon soon!

I may be on the way by the time most of you read this post. This trip will be two weeks and I will travel approximately as shown above beginning in Portland and heading sorta clockwise as seen here. It's a long very busy haul over 2100 miles but I know the scenery will help pass time between visits with customers.
Many of you have writing e-mail to me and have commented that I should be going to Astoria, Seattle or Tacoma. I agree. However, I was there about 3-4 weeks ago and posted many photos of that trek on this blog. You will have to back up a bit to find them. There are close to 900 photos on this blog now (100 per page) so I would guess many of those photos are back 100-200 photos by now.

Again, Thank you to all of you who toss travel tips my way. This route ahead is unchartered water for me. I only hope to do photographic justice to this beautiful part of the USA. This trip will be my last scheduled trip to Washington and Oregon for a while but I do expect to be back late this year.

Looking ahead. I have scheduled August 9 - August 21 for Northern California and Northern Nevada. Followed by September 16 - October 7 in the Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose areas. Then October 8-15 in Albuquerque for the Balloon Feast as well as a trip to the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, Petrified Forest and Canyon de Chelly. So that's a bit to look forward to in the late summer and early fall.

Thanks for all your kind comments. I appreciate all your encouragement as well as your memories or impression of what the photo says to you. I purposefully do not write a lot of stuff on each photo. I'd rather just hear the many varied meanings or thoughts a photo has to others. I am still trying to figure out how we could all charter about three 747's and go on a long trip taking photos together!

All the best. NikonSniper Steve
