Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Road Trip photography

As most of you know, the New Day Team has been promoting meet ups in real life. One of the many great things about meet ups are photos and sometimes traveling.

I have a few photos of my road trip to Portland Oregon yesterday along I5 and south east Portland. Nothing really spectacular as most shots were taken through the windshield or side window. If you like photography take a look.

It was mostly sunny as I left Corvallis.

Traveling north I could see the fog ahead.

Rural Oregon is beautiful.

The two vehicles in front of me say it all- farming country. The pick up truck said PickSeed and had a muddy four wheeler in the back. Next to it was a double bottom tractor trailer loaded with hay.

Several waterways are along I5 that add to the scenery.

Portland has some of the prettiest buildings and the city streets are clean.

I missed my turn and and it was some nine blocks or so before I could get turned back around. I was listening to the radio and not the GPS. ;)

That's o.k. It was an adventure to see new places.
