It was a bone-chillingly cold, but wonderfully sunny winter morning. An Arctic storm was less than 24 hours away – and I knew I’d be homebound (along with the rest of western Oregon) for the next several days.
A quick scenic drive to appreciate the dazzling conditions seemed like a good idea. So I hopped onto the Travel Oregon website and, using their handy tool, selected the Vineyard and Valley Scenic Byway, which takes you through rural Tualatin Valley, including the charming community of Helvetia.
Here's a few snaps from that bright and clear winter day.
