Pacific Northwest (Portland, Eugene), where one Oregonian honored us with their SNARK license plate.
Attended the Ducks vs. Bruins game in Eugene and I'm not impressed with the Oregon football team.
Better Quarterback play out of UCLA and pulling a Ferentz (watch the fake punt) might have provided for an upset.
A couple of closing observations from Saturday -- Autzen Stadium does get loud, my ears were ringing. The Duck (mascot) is a DICK and the scientific community is united in that fact.
In Portland we ate at some food trucks, Mac & Cheese with Pepperoni, Jalapenos and Pepper Jack Cheese...Mmm.
Voodoo Doughnuts is overrated and overpriced, especially to this Son/Grandson of a over 50 year family Donut business.
A lovely drive through the Columbia River Gorge included Crown Point (extremely windy), numerous waterfalls, including Multnomah (pictured) and a stop at Timberline Lodge which provided a great view of Mt. Hood.
The drive back to Portland included a pass through Boring, Oregon and from what I saw it lived up to its name.
