Day four was for the most part, spent preparing for our return to Portland and taking my brother in to see his primary doctor. Later my father treated everyone to a wonderful meal at Blue Water Grill.
|Very scrumptious seafood|
Right after this thank you my computer decided it had enough and just quit working the rest of the trip. I was unable to comment on any blogs I follow as well as completing any posts. We are home now and life for the most has returned to normal except for this miserable chest cold that I brought back to Portland with me and promptly shared with MeMa.......sorry, love.
When we left Arizona we left blue sky and a desert that had not dried out yet from 100+ temps. So as you can see there is still green in them thar hills.
|Joshua tree - Yucca brevifolia|
Believe me there is no shortage of these odd looking trees
|After traveling many miles, we felt we needed to treat ourselves at some of the local Casinos|
|With record rainfall in California the hills that are normally golden brown are as green as any hill in Oregon|
|We quickly went from blue sky and dry pavement to heavy snow and very little pavement.|
