Weekly Winners 8/31/08

Weekly Winners, hosted by Lotus.

Click pics for better looking larger images or take a peek at the entire album and/or watch as a slideshow at this link.

I'll be entertaining a visitor, so it might take me an extra day to get around to all who comment, but I promise I will, and thankfully, it will be a relaxing holiday with lots of time. And coffee.

A friend came to visit from Tokyo, so we explored and went up to Mt Hood and got these shots.
