After I had boondocked at the Vancouver, WA Wal-mart while waiting for mom's arrival, I was ready for a more scenic setting. We spent the next two nights at Champoeg State Park near Wilsonville, Oregon. Somehow I lost all the pics taken there, but thankfully not the ones from one of our excursions from there.
This fortuitous little accidental encounter with the Dahlias actually started with our trying to get to Wilsonville for internet access since I couldn't get my satellite to work through the trees at the state park.
We wound up lost in Canby instead, but couldn't be sorry about it when we found out we were in the "Dahlia Capital of America!" Mom and I are both flower nuts as well as tree huggers, so we stopped for a walk around the grounds.
On the way home, we found a little farmer's market where we bought the freshest corn, cabbage, green beans and cucumber we've ever had. We both laughed about how it was one of the luckiest cases of getting lost we'd ever experienced!
