Andrey has been "threatening" me with this trip for five months already: he loves Oregon yet I can't seem to handle long road trips well. That's why he told me about it only a few days before we left, so that it would be too late to cancel the reservation (he always does that;-) Yet at the end I was glad he made me take this short vacation - it was definitely much needed!
Our cowboy style room and cowboy style me;-)))
My breakfast Bible studies - finally in peace and quiet!
Andrey and his uncle making beef jerky - yeah, it's possible to DIY those;-)
Hey, we had some "fashion gurus" among us: Dan and Egor;-)
Were feeding deer right from our balcony...
Volcano craters and caves:
Can you spot Andrey in the Ice Cave in the picture below?...
Long yet beautiful ride back to California - it already felt (and smelled!) like Christmas;-)
Driving in the clouds...
P.S. We actually have a town called Weed in Northern Cali;-) It's not a joke!
I hope you guys had a chance to get some rest this weekend also... or at least this month;-) If not, please try to - it can do miracles to you, really!
