2018: THE CHURCH OF THE OPEN ROAD’S YEAR IN REVIEW

Another year of travel and adventure…

Click on any picture and they'll all expand.


Sunshine, an old barn and dry pavement.  An upside of climate change might include that January 1stis a good day for a little ride.



Pigeon Point Light Station in silhouette.



Discovering the place where old Willys Jeeps are born again.



Sand dollar and its track across the beach.  Who knew?



Old Schoolhouse #1.



Study of a Lake County marsh.



Evidence of Bruce Wayne’s rather unceremonious demise.



Manzanar, again.  Lest we forget.



Return to Simpson Camp.  Will revisit with Mom in May 2019.



A full-to-the-brim Pinecrest.



All-too-frequent hillside scene #1.



The Painted Hills of the John Day Fossil Beds.



View from Wallowa Peak.



All-too-frequent hillside scene #2.



Old Schoolhouse #2.  [Hells Bend School. “Gimme an H!  H! Gimme an E! E! ... ”]



The family adds a new member.



Budapest cathedral.



Danube panorama.



Czech village.



People you meet on the road.



Into the Klamaths.



Art you can drive.



Going for a physical.



A perfunctory picture at Portrait Point.



Our carbon footprint gets smaller.



Shots of the Year:

3rd Runner-up:  The cat who owns at least the barn – maybe the entire ranch.



2nd Runner-up: Shades of “The Great Escape.”  Seventy-five years ago, people died trying to cross the Czech-Austrian border.  We breezed through in a tour bus.



1st Runner-up:  Enrico, the Yamaha, heads toward the Marble Mountains seemingly without me!



Shot of the Year:


Sunrise in Central Oregon.

    1. Ha! I'm using a $150. Sony with a Zeiss lens for some of these. Some came from my iPhone. Not as happy with the Sony as the Panasonic it replaced...

  4. I so enjoy your blog...the open road has always been a draw for me, also. We are camp-hosting at Wright's Beach till end of June. It might make for a nice ride on your bike.

    1. Good to hear from you. Wright's Beach is right close by and I'm over-due for a ride.
