Really this is travel TO LCC day one, but who cares about technicalities? The trip from top to bottom of Oregon is really beautiful, especially in early Spring, when the Willammette Valley is warming, the pastures and fields are green, the lambs are gamboling (as lambs are wont to do), the hill and mountainsides are clothed in deep green conifers. Myriad rivers, creeks and streams follow or duck under the freeway. A decent lunch and a leg stretch or two filled the 7 hour drive into Northern California past Mt. Shasta. [note: Lake Shasta is horribly low. The drought has dealt a nasty hand.]
So it’s a walk, dinner at The Cattleman, and I may catch one of the NCAA play-in games, or not.
Tomorrow, on to Monterey.
