Adventures in Oregon

So it's Brianna's Spring Break and time for a good vacation for me! So we decided that we would head up to Portland to visit Brianna's college friends. We headed out Friday night, stopped off in Yreka to catch some shut eye, and then cross the border in the morning!

This is my first time visiting Oregon and finishing the trip this morning was great. I forgot that outside of the valley there are literally greener pastures. It really is amazing how different driving is going from California to Oregon, It's like going back to home to Germany - all the road signs and on/off ramps are different. Anyways, Brianna's friends live in Oregon City, Oregon on a small hill over looking the valley. It's a beautiful house and I can't wait to sit out on there deck and drink my coffee.

So for our first day we lounged around and ate lunch when we arrived then ran off to for hiking in the Columbia River Gorge. Our first stop was at a nice small falls called Waneekah Falls. After that we moved along to the Multnomah Falls and capped off the evening watching the sunset at the mouth of the river. All and all a good start to the vacation and how to round off the first day, Now based on the stories I've heard from Brianna the day may be over but the night has only just begun! We have a night full of games and shows ahead of us. Sounds like a night with Sandy, Nick, and Doug sans the Tanqueray.

Well I'll update more later. Happy Easter weekend.
