We got into Vancouver about 5 last night! I was a nervous wreck coming down the mountain into Pendleton, OR. That is a huge downgrade with a hairpin curve. But I prayed all the way down and it went just fine.
Eastern Oregon is very barren to me. It's brown, no trees, and rock. As I drove further west it slowly got more green. When it was finally to the point where there were pine trees everywhere I was so excited! I almost felt like crying.
It is so good to be home! I still don't have any internet at my temporary home. Right now I'm sitting at Kim's using my laptop. Not only do I have internet connection here but she fed me a wonderful dinner - marinated tuna, rice, and salad. Good food and good company!!
