The drive, the view, the food, everything was worth it. We drove from home all the way to Portland and it was one of the most scenic drives I’ve ever taken. We caught a glimpse of Mount Shasta along the way and also saw a lot of greenery. The closer we were to Portland, the colder the air got. It rained on our first day there, but it didn’t ruin my mood at all. It was a great way to end the year and also a birthday well spent.
