|Holly from Redlands|
|Love the mixers on the ceiling!|
And, in the small world department, our server asked, "are you from Redlands?" when she saw our jackets. Her family ran Melzer's Fine Books in Redlands and she lived there for a while before moving up this way. So say hello to Holly!
We finally learned what the trees were that we saw being planted all over. Oregon grows hazelnuts (aka filberts). Who knew? They also have large pastures full of grasses that I had heretofore only seen growing on the side of the road. Turns out they are growing them for seed. So if you have a lawn with fescue grass, chances are the seed was growing up here somewhere.
|Lots of filbert trees in the area|
The day's report: Willamina to Forest Grove, 46 miles/1561 to date
|Not sure how this solar array would pencil out, given the weather!|
