We escaped the cold for a day or two and booked it for the best coast.
Found ourselves in a car way too fancy for us, driving through forest preserves and mountains up to Seattle for rain and coffee, and back again.
Mount Hood, Bagby Hot Springs, Portland, Seattle, The Pied Cow, very first Starbucks, a super spacey needle, vegan food, Doug Fir, rental car, Japanese Gardens, Chinese Garden, trees, trees trees.
We'll be back, without a doubt. I'd trade the smell of forest trees for the city any day.
Until next time.
