I couldn't resist. Our church is on the side of a mountain overlooking
the Willamette Valley. On a clear day we have a gorgeous view of 5
snow-covered mountain peaks, including your beloved Mt. Rainier and
Mt. St. Helens, and Mt. Adams, as well as Mt. Hood and Mt Jefferson
in Oregon. Plus, we can see as far south as the Three Sisters in central
Oregon (if the mountains didn't block them). Ah, such beauty is
enough to make a Greek euphoric.

Hey, if you're from out of town and visiting Portland, be sure to check
with me. If possible (there's my out), I'll treat you to a great salmon
dinner and/or show or direct you to some of the best places to see and
