getting away

Sometimes it’s good to get away.oregon 2012 final 057

Ada and I  drove Interstate 5 all the way away . California is a long tall state !oregon 2012 final 041

From Arcadia to Grants Pass , Oregon . Then over to Coos Bay and up the Oregon coast a bit . Then back over to the 5  from just north of Lincoln City and from Salem  on the 5 up to Portland .  Then straight down the 5 from Portland all the way to Arcadia.  Home again .oregon 2012 final 063

For you out there in Blogsville who have never been to California or Oregon , I would recommend driving up the coast instead of the 5 . Take Highway 1 for a long winding drive , or Highway 101 . Oregon Feb. 2013 032 Interstate 5   saves time but is monotonous . Even Highway 99   is more interesting . Or go east up the 395 .Oregon Feb. 2013 023

Or take the bullet train up the middle of the state . You’ll have to wait , however , until California buys the rights-of-ways and then , that done , builds a bullet train .train
