Now I know the theme is trees but the rules clearly state there is only one rule and that is your photograph must be square in shape!Becky B
In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home, which is Prescott, AZ and spiral farther and farther from home to share different tree from my travels. All of these posts will work for both Becky B’s #TreeSquares and Cee’s Flower of the Day, #FOTD
When my family moved from flat, muggy Indiana to Portland, Oregon at the foot of both Mt. Hoot and Mt. St. Helens when I was 15, I thought I had gone to heaven. I became the Oregon Chamber of Commerce to anyone who would listen to me. As you can see, the primary tree in Oregon is the evergreens sought after by the logging industry.
I lived in Oregon until 1982 when my first husband and I moved to Colorado Springs. It took several years before I quit being obnoxious about the perfection of Oregon.
Three years later I had finally recovered from leaving Oregon, when my first husband and I left Colorado and settled in Central California. From the age of 13, my brother never left Oregon and rarely traveled, so after Mom died in 2006, Randy and I decided it was time to take some trips together.
We started out close to his home. We drove from Portland up the Columbia Gorge one day and took a day trip to Tillamook and Lincoln City on another day. In 2018 we spent three days in Newport, Oregon to get out of the heat that had attacked Portland.
Thanks for joining me for a tree-lined walk down this Oregonian memory lane.
