Photos from our winter adventure of the last few weeks. It was magical seeing the valley blanketed in white and observing the remarkable level of social solidarity that emerges when people are nudged out of their cars. In some places, after the deep snow hit, the streets were more the province of walkers and skiers (not to mention a few determined bikers) than drivers. People were talking, helping each other, crowding onto the remaining buses and trains that Trimet valiantly tried to keep running. Drivers who would normally be speeding past my bicycle with sociopathic disregard were stopping to pick me up by the side of the road when I stuck my thumb out.
Hey - it was nice to get to know some of you.

(Abe was not impressed.)
