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.

I was attempting to point and shoot a sign. Missed! Beautiful blue skies.

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.

I am working on uploading and sorting more photos of the meet up itself. Stay tuned! ;D

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
