Had a perfect travel day yesterday. Actually got away early, 8:45, and had beautiful cold clear weather all day. It was only once we got close to Portland that we saw any snow at all and there it was only deep in the bush. But shortly after we stopped for the night the snow started.

... down the streets, window shopping and people watching. We saw what looked like a small, cute memorial site. Given it had just been Memorial Day, we assumed it had something to do with that. It was us and one other human. The other human, an older gentleman, stood very still staring at the monument leaning on a massive stick (weird cane?), no doubtedly paying his respects.
