Sauvie Wheat and Back Across the St John's Bridge

 This Wheat field on Sauvie Island is amazingly picturesque...
... and just to know it is a staple of our food supply astounding and renewable.
 I don't know of may sights more peaceful than this tree in a field...
 ... or the shades of color.
 This field is on a rural road on the east side of the island and less than a mile from the Columbia river
 We crossed the St. John's Bridge to the East side of the Willamette river...
 ...and seeing why this is called PortLand
 Portland's Convention is highlighted by it's beautiful twin towers ...
 The historic Portland Sign has had many changes:L"Since its installation in 1940 the sign has carried various messages and animations, generally advertising Portland companies, the longest-lasting version being for White Stag Sportswear, from 1959 until 1997."

Of course I always add a totally irrelevant picture like pyramids in the Oregon Forests *lol*

Quote of the Day ~ “Plant a kernel of wheat and you reap a pint; plant a pint and you reap a bushel. Always the law works to give you back more than you give.” ~  Anthony Norvell (interesting guy look him up)
