After a long day drive through East Oregon, we were finally at Biggs, a small town by the side of Colubia River. It was raining all the time. But right after we had a quick snack, the sun finally bursted through the cloud and give a magitc shine upon the hills nearby.

We pulled up to grab a TB hotel cache at this gas station, my first find in Oregon. These wise guys, along with some of their friends, were hanging out nearby. I like how one is standing, one is resting, one looks like it is starting to charge me.

Mount Hood rises behind the intersection of Interstate 84 and US 97 in Biggs Junction, OR. Taken from the bridge crossing the Columbia River. I can't help but want to reach out and grab the train. For some reason it looks like a model railroad.

This shot of gulls in a parking lot at Biggs, OR was taken by one of my grandsons. He was 4 and a half at the time he took this picture. I straightened it and cropped it a bit. Otherwise the composition is his.

Why, what a classy looking sign. Of course it's classy, why do you think I took a picture of it? It's somewhere in oregon...you can see the Columbia river, and Washington on the other side, can't you?
