As we begin a new chapter in our lives some have asked that we begin a blog to keep interested ones informed of our whereabouts and activities. As the time to actually take off approached our seven-year-old grandson told us to have a good time on our adventure. Thus, our title "The Great Keen Adventure" was born. As you peruse the site it is our hope that you will be blessed with what we have to share and where we have been. God bless you!
It's been awhile since I have made a post on this blog. We are back on the road and loving it! These are a few pictures from our travels over the past several days through the desert. Enjoy! Desert Slideshow
Around the 12th we spent a few days in the area of Roseburg, Oregon. One of our day trips was to Watson Falls in the Umpqua National Forest. The slideshow contains pictures from the area and our trip to the falls. Enjoy! Roseburg Slideshow
We had a nice drive from Washington to Myrtle Creek, Oregon. I took some pictures, but they were mostly from my passenger seat while traveling down the road. So, there are some that are not as good as they could be. Road to Myrtle Creek Slideshow
After worship in Seattle yesterday, we did our tourist bit. The Space Needle and Pike's Market Place was as much as we were able to do in the short amount of time we had left. But, it was wonderful! The views from the top were just spectacular, and the pictures don't really do it justice. I was surprised that they took the "to be expected" photo as we entered, and then actually sent it to our email address without any charge! Enjoy the short slideshow! Space Needle Slideshow
We took a scenic drive to Mt. St. Helens today. It was simply amazing to witness the power of God in His reshaping the earth's surface. As I read the many pieces of information, viewed the pictures and videos, and listened to various park service personnel, I couldn't help but think of the arrogance of man, in his believing that we humans have any control over the natural functions of our planet! The degree of the devastation in 1980, and then the subsequent rebirth of the land, so far surpasses anything we small humans can even dream of doing. Our pictures are a mixture from four different cameras. The primary camera, the Nikon, died early on because I had failed to charge the battery the night before. So, we used our old Sony and the two Samsung cell phones. There are a few pictures from the quaint little restaurant where we enjoyed dinner, and a mural at a small town that boasted itself as the gateway to Mt. St. Helens. Other than those, the pictures are varying views of the mountains and the surrounding terrain. Enjoy the slideshow! Mt St Helens Slideshow
