northwestWell, leaving Washington and beginning to re-trace my route in the morning. This has been a truly magical trip. Back now to Sunriver and my dear friends Rick and Alexis, and reluctantly leaving Gretchen, Jerry, Max, and Sheba. This has been a fantastic week. Your forests and beaches are amazing. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Next a few more days in Sunriver and then back to Jackson, Wyoming where there are four more sessions on the schedule. Yay, Jackson and yay, Annette.  Looking forward to watching the hikers snake back and forth across Snow King again. (and breakfast at Nora’s)

Should arrive back in Des Moines about the 20th, I think.

I have met many new friends on this trip and I want to thank every one of them. May your lives be joyous and may all your dreams come true.
