I didn't get around to writing a more detailed post about Bruno's and my road trip through Oregon and California, though I've peppered some of the photos through posts since then. Better late than never, I wanted to at least gather my favourite photos, both digital and film (now that I've got them developed). I've kept the two kinds separate, since the film ones have a bit of a different look that I find interesting. You can see the full unedited set here.
It was a wonderful two weeks, the redwoods and the coast were so much more breathtaking than I'd ever imagined. The coast was so rugged, and the trees were so enormous. I particularly enjoyed camping our way south, and spending some more time in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Portland.
