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?
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.
