A Business Trip

I had to go on a business trip. We had the option of taking the company plane but decided to drive the 3 hours to our destination instead. Why you ask? Because we knew what we'd be driving through...

We started out from downtown Portland. Yes, I know. That Mountain does look fake, almost as if it's a backdrop. That's a pretty darn big backdrop.

We drove through National forests and parks....

Now, this is a view. Can you imagine waking up Saturday morning here, grabbing a cup of coffee and sitting outside on the deck? I wonder if you ever get used to this sort of view.

Several minutes later, we arrived at our meeting. It's one of those picture perfect resort towns. Quaint and charming. Main street lined with unique shops featuring local artists and family-owned restaurants.

Weather wise, we scored. Smack in the middle of Indian summer...sunny, breezy days.

Oh and the meeting went very well too.

  1. Those are some very pretty looking places.

    Although living in Alaska you tend to become somewhat used to scenery of this sort.
