I just got back from a wonderful week with my sister Carol in Boise. We visit each other once a year and it is always a special time for both of us, we can hardly wait until the next year. We always make a schedule for each day and have to fit in all our favorite shops and restaurants. We managed to get all sorts of treasures for ourselves (and each other) and even got a head start on some Christmas gifts.
There is a wonderful old abandoned farmhouse near the area where Carol lives that I have been wanting to get a photo of, but never accomplished it until this year. There is hardly any place to park near it to get out and take the photo, but we managed to find a spot this year. Here are a couple photos of the farmhouse, and also a photo I took on the plane coming back to Portland of Mt. Hood with Mt. Bachelor and the Three Sisters in the background.
