My starting point for all of my adventures has been Portland.
I moved to the area in 1997, after falling in love with the Columbia River Gorge (see earlier post). Since then, I have left about 5 or 6 times. Some times it was to start a new life somewhere else, but every time I return to this area.
Back in 1998, I grabbed my old Minolta Maxxum film camera and started taking pictures of the local beauty. For the next year, I worked as a professional photographer, selling my photographs of the beauty in the region.
So even though these pictures were not taken as part of my recent adventures, I include this sampling to show you the beautiful area where I started my journeys.
