2011, Day 286 - Celebrate

Road trip!  Today is my friend Stacey's birthday and to celebrate we grabbed his wife and headed out to central Oregon.  I made them stop a few times so I could take pictures along the way essentially hijacking Stacey's birthday.  Fortunately they're used to my photographic demands so took it all in stride.

Our planned stop was at Smith Rock State Park.  This was my second visit to this awesome natural area.  The first time there were only a few other people but today the park was busy with climbers all over the rock formations.  It was really amazing to watch those guys, some moved up the rocks with speed that seemed almost unnatural, like watching Spiderman out in nature.

We check into out hotel in the mid-afternoon and made an exceptional dinner.  Ceasar salad with smoked salmon, feta, tomatoes, cucumber, and home-made croutons.  Happy, full and tired I think we're going to call it an early night.
