One night in Astoria

The view from our hotel room
When the weather forecast is calling for a dry day, I booked a hotel in Astoria to break the monotone of the dreading winter in the Pacific Northwest. We became a local tourists, that's a good thing!

Cutting Board

Using band saw to cut the corner
Bob is making an over the sink cutting board for Pokie, we just could not find it anywhere for this type. So we "special" order it from the woodcraft master.

A Mini Reunion with AAP

Enjoying the fall colors
A junior high friend visited Portland and me for a few days, the weather is nice - no rain, can't complain as it is a beautiful fall day. We went to find fall colors, follow by a pilgrimage to the Grotto and top with a visit to Pittock Mansion to see the view of Portland from above.

Phoenix Trip - some snapshots....

Rest stop on the way to Slow Low
My two weeks vacation came and gone, I had a good time, thank you to Indra, Risma, John and Bob who took me around Arizona other than the desert and the heat.

I enjoy so much, someday I will come back to Monument Valley, it is still in my bucket list

Sedona, Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon Dam

Chapel of the Holy Cross
On the way to Flagstaff, we visited Sedona, for me it is the second time. The town has changed tremendously, there are now at least six round-about if I did not lost count. I am sure that the pictures are much better close to sunset to add more reddish colors. The next day we continue to Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon Dam and Lower Antelope Canyon.

Mogollon Rim

Mogollon Rim on Forest Road 300
When my former director knew I was coming to Goodyear, Arizona, he prepared a special trip for me to Mogollon Rim via Globe and Show Low. We spent the night in the PineTop area on a cheap motel, just to rest for the night before we headed to the Forest Road 300 for 45 miles of gravel road. What a spectacular views. Enjoy..
