When Alan and I were planning a last-minute Crater Lake trip for late May, we should have known something was up. Three nights at Crater Lake Lodge in southern Oregon’s Cascade mountains? Score!

By May, are your boomer travel feet itching for a road trip? Ours are! Alan’s had the maps out designing a late spring Oregon road trip that will take us from Crater Lake National Park to off-the-beaten-path destinations in eastern Oregon.

Today’s guest photographer, Alana Hull (Alan’s daughter) captured this tulip scene at Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, Oregon. Wouldn’t this make a fun trip for baby boomers?
Does this photo of Cape Kiwanda look familiar? Mine starred in a Saturday’s scene in 2009. Today, Alan share his version of the same shot taken while on a one-on-one photography workshop with Marc Adamus.
