If you are viewing and reading this blog, you know I have limited mobility. This means I have fewer places I can get to appreciate this beautiful country. However, I have turned a tough situation into an opportunity to be thankful for what I do have: many opportunities to view and participate in gorgeous, wild landscapes from fairly close to a road or highway.
You might notice many of these posts in this series offer scenic vistas from (largely) roads and parking lots. I hope I am accurately showcasing some of the amazing things people in similar situations to mine can still see, do and participate in. I do have two adult children who are happy to go with me on these adventures, and often return to the spots to participate in the plethora of more physical activities these areas offer. I hope as you read and view this blog, you are able to find ways to appreciate the beauty here. If you have friends or parents with limited mobility, I would encourage you to show them this blog. : )
The Historic Columbia River Highway is one of my favorite drives because it highlights amazing things that aren’t too far away for my walking constraints. When we were younger my wife and I hiked many of the gorgeous opportunities throughout this drive, as my children do now. Now, I am happy to see the scenery and participate with nature through photography.
