View from my childhood home



Five years ago today was the last time I visited my childhood home up in Welches OR (which is at the base of Mt Hood, about an hr east of Gresham). My dad had sold the house, and I made it a point to go up with my camera to take photos of some of the things I remembered the most. This was the view from our front room window.

  1. Knockout landscape. Good when your childhood view remains. Not many of us can say that.

  2. Gorgeous photo!
    I grew up in Oregon and am familiar with many of the places in the pictures on your blog. I'll have to come back here when I'm feeling a little homesick!
    So the rhodies are in bloom there now?

  6. How lovely. It is amazing that it hasn't changed - most places have. Mt. Hood is a glorious place ~ Oregon has a special aura!

  13. Wow - I can't imagine growing up with that view - and it's still there!!

    I was born in London, and moved out to a fast-growing village when I was ten. Not much of anything remain.

    How peaceful that view is - it's great that you went back to take pictures. :)
