Good Morning Great Souls!

This phrase was how our spiritual teacher, Kriyananda, would greet people in the morning.  We are here in a quiet, peaceful beautiful oak forest next to an amazing garden attempting to stay warm.  This fall has taken us to some amazing out of the way locations in the northwest and western states for which we are grateful.

We are grateful for the sounds of the coastal waters of the pacific to winds over the inlets of Puget Sound, for vast, wide fresh water rivers flowing hundreds of miles out to the sea. For the high, snow capped peaks in central Nevada and eastern sierra, for the aspen forests and sage brush plains, still waters, rushing waters, vista's as far as our eyes could see. For the 4 legged critters roaming all over and the winged critters flying above.

This photo to the left was taken of me (yes the tiny stick on top of ridge) by Sraddha with her iPhone.  We were in the Steens mountains of southeastern Oregon early october.  Such a beautiful isolated spot in the USA

We are grateful for the many beautiful moments we have had with many of you great souls this year;  for the great wonderful responses to our blog posts and comments on photos.  For our meets in the middle of nowhere and phone calls and texts.  Thank you all for supporting our travels.

We now prepare to head to, hopefully, warmer, drier climates in the desert southwest.  We will be in Tucson area with friends over the Christmas holidays but first will head to southern California to say hello to Mickey & Minnie and take care of some personal business then perhaps explore some new areas we haven't been in the RV before heading to the Sonoran Desert for deep winter.

 We wish you all the best and hope to connect with many of you as we travel around,

Happy, happy Thanksgiving, you two dedicated travelers! You are lucky not to be here in stormy Oregon today. And we are lucky Thanksgiving dinner is just down the block from our home. Krishna and Polaka have made it up here to visit Tom and Susan and help fill out the crowd of Nut Loafers : ^) at the Green Hill Cafe. We're still getting compliments on the beautiful altar we created together, Sraddha. The success of that day is one more item on the long list of things we are remembering to give our deep thanks for on this special day.

I saw Troutdale through the clouds last night! The only glimpse of western Oregon available through the clouds. Forgot my thermals... it's only 5 in Anchorage. Was 82 when we left AZ yesterday
