Will be gone for ten days as of tomorrow. Am flying to North Dakota to visit with my daughter and son-in-law, then the three of us are driving to Illinois for my other daughter's graduation, then back to North Dakota. I'll be back home on the 10th of May. Should be a great trip.
The photo below was taken from my front yard looking east. In the distance is Shaw Butte, part of the North Mountain Preserve. It's about 3/4 of a mile from my house. Read more about it here. Lots of hiking trails all through out.
