Expected Rain...Unexpected Snow

When I went to Oregon with my friends Julie and Dave last month we anticipated cold and rain.  After all, we were headed to Oregon in the winter.

Although the vineyards looked wintery in shades of gold and brown, they were still beautiful  and a delight to observe around every bend in the road.

Dave found a great place to stay that was located right in the middle of vineyard.  It was called Red Ridge Lodge and it was actually a small house.

It was a perfect place with views out over the vineyard and the trees in every direction.  It had two bedrooms and two baths and a porch that wrapped around the outside.  It was a perfect retreat.

On Sunday morning we were surprised to find our vineyard view had turned white with snow.  For us desert dwellers, it was a bit of a treat to see all that frosting decorating the scenery.

All those pretty vineyards were now a patchwork of green, brown and white.

It was interesting to observe.  The snow would stop for a while and the snow on the ground would melt.

And then, it would start again and quickly cover everything in sight.  
It was a treat to see for our short visit to this winter wonderland.
