Lois and I have been enjoying the summer in McMinnville, Oregon in the heart of the Willamette Valley wine region.  It is an area of extraordinary beauty and variety and we are surrounded by over 400 wineries and other extensive agricultural areas.  It has been a relatively cool and dry summer but the rainy season is coming and we will be heading back to Puerto Vallarta for the winter in a few weeks.  Below are some photos of this exceptional area I wanted to share with you.  Hope you enjoy them.  CLICK ON ANY PHOTO FOR A LARGER VIEW.
