2011—The Year In Place

by | Jan 10, 2012

At the end of 2006, I started doing yearly recaps of my travels. From 2006-08 I was traveling for work a lot, so the lists were rather lengthy. Since, migrating to Oregon in 2008 we’ve been keeping it much closer to home. In fact, in 2011 I flew to Boston and back and that’s it. All other travel was by car.

  • Moclips, WA
  • Brownsville, OR
  • Enterprise, OR
  • Walla Walla, WA
  • Zigzag, OR
  • Madison, NH
  • Franklin, MA
  • Boston, MA
  • Government Camp, OR

Our Valentine’s Day trip to the Washington Coast was one rich with discovery. We found an old seaside lodge with a great restaurant in Moclips, which is basically the end of the road in west central Washington.

Additionally, we took our maiden voyage to Walla Walla in 2011. Walla Walla, as you may know, is Washington’s Napa Valley. We also found our way to the charming hamlets Enterprise and Joseph, Oregon in the NE corner of the state. It’s good to know these kind of “last best places” still exist.
