Rowena Crest on the Columbia Gorge

My daughter honored me by eagerly joining me in an adventure.

We got up at 4am, scarfed some grape nuts, and set out on an hour and a half drive east along the Columbia Gorge before sunrise.  All in the name of wildflowers.

We were not disappointed. We stayed long enough to enjoy the sunrise and explore  the nearest trail a bit.  I could have stayed all day.  I don’t think it gets much better than that.  A beautiful sunrise, time with my daughter, and amazing wildflowers.  Oh, and the camera part goes without saying. My daughter, by the way is quite a photographer herself!

We got home just in time for a late breakfast as the rest of the family had not been up for very long.  It was strange to live a full adventure when we could have only been dreaming of it.
