There is something very unique about the nature and climate of the Willamette Valley; where many days a blend of fog and mist will roll down the Cascades like a silent avalanche, and when it mixed among the ancient tall evergreens it felt like being lost in a fairy tale world where anything was possible. Bill Plympton
