A Funny Hotel in Portland, Oregon
Ms. Donkey and I were a little excited when we found a chalkboard in our hotel room. The hotel was once a school and schools used to have chalkboards and big fat erasers!
But all we could do was sit on the eraser. The chalk dust made me cough a little. The board and the chalk were just too big.
We watched Beth have fun on the chalkboard and we were a little jealous. This was not my favorite adventure.
Another Mountain in Oregon
Ms. Donkey and I are having quite a road trip. We visited Mount Hood the other day and today we posed on a dead tree and looked at another mountain.
This is the first volcano I've ever seen. It's hard to imagine what it looked like in 1980, when it erupted. It's a little scary to think about the tree we were sitting on. It was standing tall, before the eruption. Yikes.
Today I am in the state of Washington for the first time. I've been in about 25 states now. Ms. Donkey is new to road tripping, so she's only up to about 8.
What a spot, sitting near the beach along Puget Sound. I like Washington, so far.
Traveling with my Buddy
Our road trip took us into Oregon today. We took a brief detour and walked up a trail.
What an amazing view of Mount Hood! It was August, but we could see people skiing on those white patches!
Ms. Donkey and I climbed a rock for a good view. From our rocky spot, we could see snow and we could see flowers. Happy!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
