Starting April 5th, 2015, directly after my workshop, me and my lady left Boise and headed to the Pacific coast. From Boise we drove through the high dessert to Bend, OR where we stayed for a couple days. We then headed over the mountain and into Portland, OR for a couple more days. After hitting the good donut spots in town we went over to the coast and up to Astoria. I have never seen the Pacific Ocean and it was breath taking. The last leg of the trip was all the way back to Boise along the Colombian Gorge.
