Find Beauty - Day 22

Today was a quiet day. We went for a ride with DH. He has a bug in his ear about converting his truck from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive. There are several factors contributing to this but the main one is that when we have a major snow event like we did in late December we can't get out of our driveway!!

So today we drove to Mist, Oregon to pick up (or so we thought) a transfer case to get his project off the ground. Unfortunately it turned out that there are 2 or 3 different sizes of transfer cases but only one of those will fit properly. This was one of the ones that won't.

So you are wondering where is the beauty in a wasted trip? Ahh, but it wasn't a wasted trip. It got us out of the house on a Sunday afternoon. It also fostered some togetherness. We saw some beautiful country that we normally have no reason to go visit. We met up with the in-laws and had dinner with them, which would not have happened tonight otherwise. So, it was a beautiful trip, even though the intended purpose did not pan out.

Until tomorrow.......
