Oregon - Its Not Florida!!

Thanks to my day job I just had the opportunity to spend a few days in Oregon.  After a couple of days of meetings I headed to the mountains to the east of Portland to see what I could see.  There were lots of evergreen trees, waterfalls and mountains.  I was lucky as the weather was unusually clear (per the residents) and so got to see much that is usually obscured by clouds or fog.  
Multnomah Falls
I drove up the Larch Mountain Rd and then walked up to the Sherrard Viewpoint where I was able to see all 5 of the mountain tops in the vicinity.

Mt Hood
The next day I spent some time in Portland checking out the Japanese Gardens and the International Rose Test Gardens.
Then I headed for the coast on the rollercoaster Route 26 for the sunset.  I pulled into Cannon Beach and started walking.  The sunset was awesome!  And they have some BIG rocks on their beaches!!

Check out more images on my website.
That's all for now!
Turn that camera on!
