Picture heavy...

I've spent the past four days at home, sick. I'll spare you the disgusting details, other than to say I went through about three weeks of toilet paper in that amount of time. So here's (probably too many) pics from my trip (thank God I didn't get sick then!). Be sure to click 'em to big 'em!

Heading through northwest MT and northern ID--some of the prettiest land in the country!

The original reason for my trip--Alison Krauss & Union Station!

Coeur d'Alene Lake - my happy place

Met up with some of my very first students. From 30 years ago.

Mt. Hood - from the north, and from the southwest

Bipolar Diva and Emmy!

Sandy - bestest bud from college!

HNTers from the old days - Audra and Addict (mother & daughter)!

Cannon Beach, OR - GOONIES!

Aberdeen, WA - monstrously tall bridge
crossing the Columbia River into Washington

The beaches from a couple of locations in Washington.
I must move next to a body of water sometime soon.

One of my former college students - Kelly.

Various parts of Washington:
Early morning misty road near Everett (excuse the windshield bugs)
Parts that look like Arizona
Leavenworth - embraced an alpine theme in town years ago
Wenatchee - at the east edge of the Cascades

I didn't get a chance to take pics of Bigfoot's home turf.
Too foggy/misty/cloudy, but damned beautiful!
The rest of Washinton is flat.
Which makes it easy for the cops to catch speeders...

Congrats if you made it this far!!
