The Drive Home
As you crest the Blue Mountains between the Grande Ronde (where La Grande, Oregon) is located) and Walla Walla Valleys, you know you're almost home. And while most winters we know we're leaving the winter wonderland behind us and headed for more brown and possibly soggy ground, this year there's a bit of hope for the wonderland continuing down the mountain and into the WWV. Still, there is nothing like mountain Christmas trees dressed in their finest, lit up by God's brightest candle. It's a farewell to Christmas, but definitely not to natural beauty.
