Saw this on a hill near Willamina, coming from the Oregon coast , through Yamhill County, heading southeast on Highway 18.
This image captures the spirit of the Spring roadtrip with my kids: make it GOOD.
Long travel? That’s part of the fun, enjoy the new and varied scenery.
Kids sparring repeatedly? That’s how kids are sometimes.
Rain, cold, hail, sunshine? All par for the coarse up in the northwest, especially this time of year.
Feeling a little yucky? Sleep a bit off for different people in different days? Make the best of it.
It’s vacation, it’s a road trip, it’s soaking up the ordinary somewhere else, more lax schedule, more of whatever sounds right.
And keep smiling. You may not realize it, but your best life is right now.
