Nature, naturally

When I think about the best parts of living in the Pacific Northwest portion of the United States, I think of the diversity of nature. With my home situated near Portland, Oregon, I am just hours away from beaches, forests, mountains and high desert (with the occasional urban area thrown in).

This week’s Daily Post photo challenge asks us to show images of where we live. I just happen to have a ton of photos ๐Ÿ˜‰ , but I’ll narrow it down to a handful.

  1. What rhymes with stanza? Panza (as in Sancho Panza), extravaganza, bonanza…

    They’re all amazing pictures, but the one with the Painted Hills is the most intriguing and mesmerizing. What a feast for the eyes.
