Driving back to Portland

Since I don’t usually get to be around for many special days in my family, I wanted to be here this year for my Mom’s birthday.  So early Friday morning I loaded up the trusty Buick Regal for the long drive back from Sacramento to Portland.  It took 12 hours this time because I stopped to enjoy some of the sights along the way.

That’s Fred, as I’ve named the Buick, along the side of 1-5.  Now here’s the reason I stopped and parked:

In Yreka I had to stop because it was starting to snow hard and I realized I had to replace my windshield wipers.  Now I can proudly say I have changed my own windshield wipers!  There was some wildlife along the way, too.
