Summer at Willamette Valley Vineyards

This past weekend, I attended the Wine Blogger’s Conference in Portland, Oregon. As part of a wine excursion, I visited Willamette Valley Vineyards just south of Salem and snapped this photo as the sun was just beginning to set.  For more about the wine conference, check out my wine blog: Oregon Winette.

The Road to Seward

Heading southeast out of Anchorage along the shoreline, the road twists and turns following highway 1. This is the road to Seward. Highlighted by mountains jettisoning from glistening glacier carved inlet known as Turnagain Arm and lush marsh lands, this scenic drive is a beauty to remember.

Wildflower Fields at Mount Pisgah

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods; There is rapture on the lonely shore; There is society, where none intrudes, by the deep sea and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more.” -Lord Byron

Wildflower at Mt. Pisgah near Eugene, Oregon

Wander the weaving trials at Mount Pisgah just a few miles south of Eugene, Oregon to gaze on the beautiful signs of spring.
