It’s that time of year again

It’s my birthday today.  Roger took the day off and I was able to sleep in.  Way in!  I even got a cooked breakfast in bed!  So then we tried to figure out what to do next.  We finally decided to pick a direction and just drive, and where we ended up would be just an adventure.  So, our final destination turned out to be the John Day Fossil Beds.  Just the rock formations alone are beautiful out there, not to mention the history to that area. 

Some of the crazy creatures that roamed this area were sloths, rhinoceroses, camels, peccaries (whatever those are) pronghorns, dogs and bears… I am quoting the flyer that I got from there.

Just because the John Day Fossil beds are kinda near where we live, it doesn’t mean that it looks like that where we live.  The following is more like we see closer to home:

I have this wierd thing for clouds.  I don’t know why, but I think they make the most amazing, gorgeous shapes.  So, as our trip was close to an end, I went crazy and took a bunch of cloud pictures.

    Happy Birthday to you…. being the first Parmeter grandchild you’re the trail blazer for the Parmeter cousins and are doing a fantastic job.

    Beautiful area that you live in. It truly does fire the imagination although I have to agree with Doug when he says he’s sure glad that he doesn’t live there! One of my few early memories is of lying on my back in a field pointing out different shapes in the clouds with my sisters.

    Again, Happy Birthday! I don’t even know how old you are this year…. older than 39 and younger than 44 . . . plus your children keep you young!

      Thank you for the birthday wishes!

      I have to agree with you guys about living in this area. You just have to be the right kind of personality. I am a tree person myself. I soooo miss the trees. Sometimes you just have to make lemonaide though, and that is what I am trying to do.
