I spent the day cruising out to the high Oregon desert again. Three hours out along the Columbia River, and three hours back. Two Rivers Correctional Institution in between, and a pit stop at the Northern Oregon Regional Correctional facility. I saw a brush fire, many kiteboarders, and a minivan with a Hawai'i license plate. To keep me company across the miles I got another great audiobook/memoir from the library read by Ruth Reichl, the editor of Gourmet magazine. She's such a great storyteller and writes so seductively about life and food. highly recommended.
