Back on 180

Saturday the 18th - we drove out 12 to 180, set the trip meter to zero, and headed north. When we'd gone five miles we started looking for a place to park. It was an all downhill day, and a little nerve-wracking. Lots of twists and turns in the road and not much shoulder. You can't beat 180 for pretty, but it's not the safest place to be a pedestrian.

When I wasn't fearing for my life, though, I was enjoying seeing things that I'd never seen in all the many times I've driven this road. Because we've been having such a wet winter, there's water running everywhere, creating little waterfalls and collecting in pools. Very beautiful.
