Though spontaneous, it seemed like the right thing to do. Catching a ride with from my friend Wills place in South Lake Tahoe to Seattle. Since there was absolutely no snow in the Sierra Nevadas in California this January, it was either up north in search of snow or trying to make it in East Hollywood L.A. But I’m happy I did take the ride and it gave me a chance to see a bit of the West Coast USA. We drove through three states, California, Oregon and Washington. And had the chance to visit Portland on the drive up. A cosy place to spend your time. It kind of reminded me of a town on the west coast of Finland. The big river, parks around, nice small cafes, food carts, best donuts I ever had and of course burnside skatepark.
