Mesa Verde

The girls and I flew to Cortez, CO yesterday to spend a couple of hours in Mesa Verde National Park. We joined my brother and his wife for part of their road trip from Montana. I visited Mesa Verde about 20 years ago with my parents, and it was fun to experience it with my daughters. They had fun climbing the ladders and checking out the stone houses.

Portland Head Lighthouse Black and White

When I first saw this Lighthouse back in 1993, while on a History trip to New England, I just fell in love with it. I also fell in love with the Maine Coastline. I just loved how the waves crashed upon the rocks. I could sit out there for hours just listening to the waves crashing. Every time I have been back I fall in love all over again. This place never gets old. If you are ever in Maine this is a definite must see.

Traveling to PDX

Today our little family will be traveling to the Portland, OR and than to Vancouver, WA for the weekend. We will be visiting one of my wife’s cousins and her family. They will be taking us to the Oregon coast one day, and I’m sure we will also check out Multnomah Falls. However, I’m looking for some suggestions on where I can take some cool Photos. If you have any knowledge of the area and can help that would be awesome.
