Today is the seventeenth day of the A - Z Challenge, which is hosted by  Arlee Bird's: Tossing It Out.   Several of my blogging friends are participating, and this year there are over 1,200 participants. We post everyday, except for Sundays, and work our way through the alphabet. I am posting past photos that I have taken, and am linking them up to the posts where the photos originated from too. When you are all done here at Oregon Gifts,  please click here to visit the other bloggers who are participating in this challenge. 

If you miss a day, you miss a lot!  Don't miss out on the news ... Please click here to go to my home page and see what is happening in Mayberry today.

I do love those wispy clouds! We've had a lot of those here in Seattle lately! These are really incredibly beautiful captures, Kathy! The lighting is superb! Hope you have a very Happy Easter Weekend! Enjoy!

Thank you everybody! The funny thing about these pictures is that we were driving down the highway on our way home from Bend, going 60 mph, and I put the setting on "Action Sports" and just clicked away. I took around 20 of them, and these are ones that turned out the best. In other-words, they are accidents or divine. Take your pick, lol.
