The Great Oregon Trail Adventure

So, this is what my mother titled our move from Chicago to Oregon: “The Great Oregon Trail Adventure”. Oh it was indeed an adventure.
We made it through 80 mph winds, flooding, and hail (not  all in the same town), and stayed in a not-so-great motel, but we made it here safe, and alive. We even got to be there for moral support to a family whose car was stuck in the flood.

I’m currently still photoshopping most of the photos I took along the way, but here is the first batch (not in any real order, sorry). I’ll keep posting them throughout the next couple of weeks. 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

The smallest casino I have ever seen:

These were fields and parking lots that were flooded in Minnesota:

This was 5:00pm. It’s not supposed to be quite that dark, quite that early:
