Congratulations to CJ and his sweetheart! What a lovely time you had....hopefully your return trip is uneventful also! Happy Trails and pass the cookies please

It's a real winter wonderland there. That statue looks like they're stepping on poor Seaman. (Also what a terrible name for a dog.)

It is a great day when your child can take over the driving! I love the Oregon coast -- have only been there in late April/early May so have managed to avoid large numbers of tourists.

I generally don't mind driving in the snow too much, but that road in the mountains I would have turned back.

Congratulations to CJ and his fiance! Sorry your snow isn't melting, but the snow covered fields and trees are beautiful. Sounds like it was the best time to go to the beach.

Incredible scenery - especially the snow scenes. I would probably have remained home and demanded the cookies stay with me. I'm pretending I didn't see the part about eating the dogs.

Congratulations to CJ and Andrea - a new chapter is beginning! That road looks scarier than anything we have here because all our snowplows are on the job as soon as we get enough to turn the streets white. Those are beautiful photos and an intriguing story behind the statue, one I was not familiar with.

Congrats to CJ and Andrea. What wonderful news to start a trip with. Don't envy the trip across the mountains but having the beach to yourselves had to have been special. I didn't know about the dog and found it interesting.

I have a Wrangler Jeep and they sure come into their own on icy roads! Congrats to CJ and Andrea!

Thanks for a delightful post. Our congratulations to the happy couple and to mom and dad C. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery of your winter drive.

Congratulations!! Maybe there'll be a grandchild in your future?

Congrats to the happy couple, and I DON'T mean Lewis and Clark. Good thing CJ has the Jeep Wrangler. The drive looks treacherous. As for the Corps of Discovery...was there not wild game plentiful in that wilderness? That's over 5.7 dogs per person! Where could they find that many "wild" dogs? I've not seen many wild dogs, but I've seen lots of deer. I'm not buyin' it! Somebody needs to do an expose' on those explorers!

I can see why you were apprehensive about this trip. I will have to look at the map to see where you went.

That snow is incredible. Hey, I would have eaten the bag of cookies regardless of the weather!

Even though I grew up in North Dakota and drove through blizzards from time to time I don't think I would have taken the chance on that very icy looking road. Glad you made it.

Such beautiful, snowy scenery! And congratulations to CJ and his fiance!
By: Pixel Peeper on January 16, 2017
It's great to be able to visit spots like that out of season. And I'd have had to try at least a few cookies for quality control purposes!
By: Botanist on January 16, 2017
Amazing that - in that dangerous weather - you had such a great trip and wonderful photos for us. More amazing, you didn't eat any cookies. Congratulations to your son and soon-to-be DIL.

PS I've been working on trying to add you to my sidebar. There's been something weird going on in that regard. It seems I was dropped from your following (for a second time)? Perhaps you were dropped from mine. At any rate, I wanted to let you know that it's not from lack of trying. I've been trying to add your blog. And I tried in the past too. I'm persistent. Will give it another go. You're a staunch loyal, and I appreciate you. =)

These pictures in the snow look like postcards. It is so beautiful. Right now, we have no snow at all and it is supposed to go up in temps. How weird is that? Congrats to a future wedding...you will be busy, maybe creating a portrait? Glad you all made it safe and sound as well.

Congrats to CJ! And what a great job of driving he did. I love being at the (other) coast during the off season.
By: The Bug on January 17, 2017
Congrats to CJ and Andrea, and a big thanks to CJ for chauffeuring you and Ms C around and getting you back to us safe and sound.
