|Mt. Hood looked particularly good.|
Well, the plan was two-fold: shoot stock photography in the Columbia River Gorge (primarily wildflowers on the Rowena Plateau and flowering fruit trees in the Hood River area), and take "Bart" on a quick shake-down cruise.
Bart performed admirably. Alas, the wildflowers were nonexistent and the trees had yet to come into bloom. Even though we'd visited this area on April 27th a number of years ago, this April was markedly different.
Any day out and about, however, is a good one, so no complaints! ©Carol Leigh
