Odds and Ends from Southern Oregon

The following is a series of photos from our travels from Portland south to the Eugene area and then over to the coast.  It's also somewhat of an experiment as I begin to get comfortable with Adobe PhotoShop and some if it's advanced capabilities -- most notably, in this case, its capability to shrink photos for web publication.  I've been experimenting with different levels of compression, so some of these photos may look a bit fuzzy, but I'm trying to get a 600x800 image down to about 30-45 Kb. while maintaining reasonable quality.

I'll keep adding photos to this page as we continue to wander the area.

Lots of grass and open space

Plenty of room for both the coach and car.
