Upper Geyser Panorama, Yellowstone, and planning is half the fun

Oh, it was so pretty that day! I’m really appreciating these photos now that I’m glued to my keyboard.

We just made most of the reservations for our next road trip. Planning a trip is so fun. Instead of driving 8 hours the first day to Gold Beach Oregon, the grueling segment we had planned, we’re going to drive 4 hours to Trinidad California, then 6 hours to Bandon Oregon. We found really cute places to stay. We spent a lot of time booking Portland, which is super expensive. We finally found a reasonable place and also learned a lot about Portland sights and activities. I really wanted to experience being able to walk around, go to cafes and restaurants, and soak up the atmosphere. Plus we learned they have an amazing and huge Japanese garden right in the middle of the city! I can’t wait to photograph the gardens, parks, and river.

Planning really is half the fun of a trip. Now that I’ve seen where we’ll be staying and have perused the areas and maps in the process of making reservations, I’ve already begun having the next experience.

Hope you’re having a peaceful, happy, and/or exciting (in a good way) weekend.
