touring the nw

My mother and I have been showing some out-of-town visitors around, which means the usual tour: Washington Park (the Rose Gardens are really quite outstanding), Mt. Hood (Timberline Lodge), the Columbia Gorge, including Multnomah Falls (good soft ice cream there) and the Vista House at Crown Point. Vista House has always been one of my favorite spots. It sits high above the Columbia River and provides a magical view of the gorge, doncha think?

The Vista House was recently restored, and it now sports a cafe, cuz Oregonians can’t go anywhere without coffee. Here’s a shot of the building itself:

By the way, I am NOT pregnant, so you can cross that off the list of big announcements. Actually, I am a little concerned that this whole big announcement thing is going to be anticlimactic, so maybe everyone should just forget that I even mentioned a big announcement.

    I’m going to have to visit the Vista House this summer, its been a long time. And don’t worry, I’ll prepare myself for a “not-that-big-of-a-deal” announcement from you, so in reality I’ll be super excited. [Mind games work on me I tell ya!]

    Phpppt! We can’t forget it now! It’s already out there! Just kidding, although I had guessed pregnant also. But seriously, the wait is kind of fun.
