Many years ago, I hopped a flight to Portland, Oregon to support a fellow photographer who opened a small gallery in a really unique artist co-op building. I had only traveled to the Northwest part of the country once before in my teen years. If you've never ventured to the Northwestern part of the country, you are in for a treat. I've never seen so much beauty or how crisp and clean the air could smell. Sadly, I haven't been back since, but it's a trip I still think about often.
