It's not very often that I get a chance to take pictures without the truck rolling down the highway at 55 miles per hour, so when Craig opted to park at a vista point for about 30 minutes before our appointment this morning, I grabbed my camera and went exploring.
Willamette Falls was originally an Indian salmon fishing village.  Beginning in 1842 it furnished power for a lumber mill, a flour mill (1844), a woolen mill (1864), and the first paper mill in the pacific northwest in 1867.  On this cool, lightly foggy morning, with the sun just rising, it made for some fun picture taking.
There are quite a few boat houses that line the riverbank, and given the opportunity, Craig and I often talk about living on the water.  It's probably what motivated us, when we saw the Powerball billboard showing a payout for $325 million, to buy a few tickets.
All too soon, it was time for me to head back to the truck and make our first of two deliveries on our current load.  If all goes as we hope, we should be warm and cozy in our own home by the river Monday afternoon.
