Caveat: Chocolate Avenue

I took a walk this afternoon. This time I went west. I found the big chocolate factory. There is a street behind the factory called Chocolate Avenue (sign at right in picture – the big white building is the chocolate factory).

Now I understand why Arthur likes to visit his brother in Montrose.

Some other pictures.

Tomorrow, Arthur and I drive northwest. It looks like we’re not going to meet Arthur’s friends in Reno, so we’ll be heading straight for Portland. Our holiday adventure is coming to a close. We’ll have a bit over a week in Portland and then we return to Alaska.

Caveat: Poem #887

I took a long walk up to the east:
a gradual hill past old farms,
the snow-covered, sun-drenched road
saw new subdivisions
branching left and right
but at the end
was a pile
of stored
hay.
