The drive north
An ordinary rest stop can become a place of beauty when you arrive at dawn along with swarms of birds. Thousands of birds caused truck drivers, business men and our little family to stop and stare in wonder. The sky was streaked with dawn's colors and the birds created intricate lines all across the wide expanse over the valley.
Pike Place Market
We celebrated a birthday on the road (more on that later), so I took the birthday girl and her guest to see some sites. Pike Place Market was perfect, filled with beautiful flowers, interesting craft vendors, and fresh donuts. A win-win-win for an 11th birthday.
We see majestic Mt. Shasta each summer, but in February? Stunning! Sing along with me: For purple mountain majesties....
