Nearly 2 months ago, my wife and I went on vacation up to Portland, Oregon. We drove to San Francisco, stayed for a night, and then drove up the west coast. It was a fantastic experience (Portland was a wonderful host ^_^ and it was awesome to see so much greenery after such a long time!) and hope to drive up again in the near future.
In the mean time, I am posting the pictures (and videos? I'm not sure what features come with the embedded picasa slideshows) of our trip - all the crappy ones are by me ^_~.
