Washington and stuff

Here are some of the pictures I took from Northern California to Washington.

This is the highway through the Shasta National Forest, looking at Mount Shasta. It is the snow capped mountain in the distance.

A closer but blurrier view of Mt Shasta through my dirty window!

This is driving through Shasta National Forest. Doesn't do it justice.

This was a really nice doggie area at a rest stop in Oregon.

While going through Oregon, we passed a sign that said "45th Parallel Halfway Between the Equator and North Pole".

This shows some of the leaf colors we saw in Oregon. The whole drive was fantastic. I could almost move there; well, anywhere south of Portland.

Driving through Washington, I saw a sign that said "ecology crew". Then noticed that it was the trash pick up crew. I like "ecology crew" much better.

Mari-med store near my sister's house. They legalized medical and recreational marijuana here and are now trying to figure out how to control the recreational part of the law.

Because of the rain, everything here is green and lush. My sister's yard is filled with fruit trees, flowers, shrubs and exceptionally high pine trees. This is just one section of her yard. Beautiful and relaxing. The dogs like walking around in it.

I will try to get a picture of some of the tree lined streets here because the colors are beautiful. The lake here is also big and picturesque.

We have been taking it easy the last couple of days. Did a little shopping yesterday then went to the casino for awhile. Today we are resting and going out for Chinese food tonight. I will take a picture of my sister's dogs. Seymour gets along ok with them. Zooey is a bit frightened. Penny, one of her dogs is a barker and scares Zooey. Seymour actually growled at her, as if saying "back off", when she got too close, and she got the message. She has 2 other dogs, Abbie is a sweet dog and Skipper is an 18 year old dog who is blind and deaf and had one leg amputated. Skipper mostly sleeps so my dogs ignore him.

I think I am now caught up!
