This afternoon we begun the trip down to Chico, CA, for a wedding this Saturday. We, my mom and I, are travelling in my sisters Honda minivan. We had heard that there were several brush fires in southern Oregon but I didn't expect this much smoke. I'm told that the fire producing the smoke was near Diamond Lake in the mountains NE of Medford. The smoke wasn't even visible until we were around tem miles north of Medford on I-5.
Friends Dan & Judy generously offered to let us stay both on our way down and on the return trip on Sunday. I had stayed with them a few weeks back on my way to Crater Lake. Have I ever mentioned that I really like road trips?
