I have reached a time in my life where I take time to enjoy the view. I love sitting on the porch and gazing out to the setting sun and basking in all that the day has brought my way. I started my journey in My vintage trailer, Lolita with a back door to enjoy the view of each day. Now, my journey continues in a Class B Roadtrek. Life and Dreams Change as life dictates, Come along and enjoy..... My Back Porch View.
Waking up in beautiful Memaloose campground with a river side view of the Columbia River was only the beginning of a spectacular day. This was definitely a wonderful spot to savor morning coffee.
After a spot of liquid energy, I loaded up which didn't take long as I had done a pit stop landing last night and only removed from the trailer what was necessary to sleep and eat for the night. It made for a quick exit in the morning. Although I had difficulty tearing myself away from the spectacular view.
Thee were two view points above the campground on a little road so off I went to soak in more of the view before moving on down the road.
I was not prepared for the splendor of the wildflower meadows.
At first the subtlety of the wildflowers is lost in the immense landscape,
but I was drawn in to the landscape where,
one by one the flowers
revealed themselves to me.
a spectacular array of colors
Each direction, appeared a new flower
A rainbow set before my hungry eyes
Bachelor buttons evoked memories of picking wildflowers with my grandmother as a child.
Like a drunken sailor, I moved on down the road to sights that awaited me.
On to waterfalls!
Oregon has many, many waterfalls. No trip to the Oregon Columbia Gorge Area should be complete with viewing waterfalls. I choose a scenic drive just off the Columbia Gorge Highway that I knew would allow waterfall viewing with a minimum of walking. My spirit is willing, my hip not so much.
While only a few miles before the landscape basalt and desert scrub. It now has evolved into a spectacular green carpet of moss and covered by a lovely canopy of of trees.
Horsetail Falls Overlook
The Mist from the waterfall fell like soft rain.
What a wonderful day!
Next it was on to my new camp site and begin the set up for a fabulous Glamping (Glamorous Camping) Weekend
