Today we traveled the majestic Columbia River. Its views are spectacular, especially Multnomah Falls. This was described by William Clark as "forming a perfect mist, landing in a pool and descending again to the river." Then it was down the river to its mouth at Cape Disappointment. And up to Long Beach, here we viewed the skeleton of a whale that had died on the beach in 2000. The town buried it to let it decompose, resurrected it in 2003, and put it on display on the beach trail of William Clark, who told of seeing one on Nov. 19, 1805. ok

Yesterday our driver, John took us by a muffler dealership with a rather unique car in front of it. He said he would love to drive it some day. Through the magic of digital photography and PhotoImpact, I was able to create this fanciful picture.
