We're back home! We enjoyed a great vacation, and now it's time to gratefully reflect with Susanne from Living to Tell the Story about the past three weeks. If you want to join in, click on the link and sign up to share your week's adventures in gratitude.
1. Visiting Friends and Family in Oregon. I was born in Oregon, as was my father. While I am now a transplanted Southern Californian, I still proudly claim my Oregonian roots. Our road trip from SoCal to OR reminded me how beautiful my home state is and made me proud again to say, "I'm an Oregon native!"
2. Beautiful Scenery. Driving either north or south on I-5 through Northern California, you will be awed by the various views of Mt. Shasta. I never tire of driving this part of the highway from the Oregon border to Redding. (Get out your maps and you'll see that you drive over several mountain passes, past Castle Crags and Lake Shasta.)
