(6 Photos) I've not ventured down this road along the Molalla River before today. I love just driving around, seeing where each random side road takes you, venturing up forest service roads or deep into the valley where life is simple and only livestock and farmland occupy the landscape. Here is where I find my favorite tree scenes. Today started off with a little bit of fog and sun that quickly turned to overcast skies. There was such a variety of atmosphere within these couple of hours, typical of Oregon almost anytime of year.
