I have that sticker on the rear window of my Subaru and it really does express a time to time need I have. I told a friend yesterday that given the choice between the beach or the mountains I would go to the mountains. Tough choice and I am glad that Eugene is situated mid-way between my local mountains and the ocean beaches. Today the mountains were calling and I headed out early. Clouds were still hanging in the trees wet from recent rain but the remaining color of the hardwoods stood out in the morning darkness.
I drove up the McKenzie Scenic Highway and out of the corner of my eye I caught site of a small stream I had never noticed on that drive. Loaded up and went down the hill. Morning light just coming over the hill.
