We had a choice or two on how we might reach our destination for our Sunday drive. We chose the back way. We decided we had enough of the interstate and wanted to see interesting scenes along a smaller highway. We were happy with our choice to take highway 530 to Rockport. We had some good views of Mt. Pilchuk.
How’s this for a tree lined road?
Here we have a little peek of snow covered Mt. Pilchuk. We enjoy roads that wind along rivers.
We arrived to our destination and spotted what we were hoping to see. Can you see it? I’ll have more photos in the days to come.
This week begins a very busy time around this old house. How’s your week shaping up?

I see him!
Nothing I love better than packing a picnic lunch and striking off on an adventure. It’s always more fun to get off the beaten path. Looking forward to seeing more of your pics.
It’s quiet here until Valentine’s Day. I did most of my cooking and cleaning over the weekend and now will just keep up with chores and visiting my favorite bloggers. Exciting life!
Love the tree-lined road!!
Beautiful pictures Ellen. I see him too! Love the old iron bridge – they are rare around here!
Love the photos, especially the first one! It’s always more interesting to travel the back roads.
Oh, my goodness! YES, I see it! Is that a common sight in that area? I’ve never seen one up close and personal! What a treat!!!!!!! The road less traveled led to something truly worth seeing!!! Magnificent!!!!!!!!
I saw him! The area looks much like the Umpqua River highway in southwest Oregon except of course for the magnificent mountain in the background.
Ah….those Sunday drives are the best. I’m just telling Scot that we should take that trip and meet you along the way. We could have….we were not too far from there on Sunday. Shucks!!! Next time….and then Mexican:)
I would love to see one of those in the wild one day. Amazes me that Judy can see them from her “front porch”! What a gift!
