You know Spring has officially arrived when Dalles Mountain Road is in full bloom! Every Spring I like to take this drive and see what new photos I can get. This year was especially nice because the kiddos' Grandma and Grandpa were with us and they got to enjoy the drive and taking photos as well. This was also the first time I'd done the drive later in the day, between 6:30 and 7:00pm, so the setting sun offered gorgeous lighting towards the end of our drive and therefore different photos from ones I've taken in the past. The flowers smelled wonderful and the scenery was beautiful. You just had to be there. Hello, Spring!
