I just returned from delivering the keynote address to the Southern Oregon Visitor's Association's annual Symposium in Medford last week. What a wonderful group of travel and hospitality professionals! Made me feel right at home. Thank you, Carolyn and Sue and Kerrie! I really envy you the Southern Oregon region--a place of such beauty and charm.
Up top, a reward for the climb, panoramic views of the Rogue Valley spread far and wide: a ring of mountains and clouds, sun and shadow, farm, field, and forest. (image source here)
I so hope it doesn't take me another ten years to return to Oregon!
