BAKLAVA AND ICONS
It is time to take our last camping trip into the Columbia Gorge before the weather gets any colder and the snow begins to fall. If one has not experienced the raw scenic beauty of the Gorge this time of year, it is a shame. The few trees in the area glow as if on fire as their leaves change color and prepare to drop to the ground. One of the best pleasures of the journey is the visit we will make to the Greek Orthodox monastery of St. John. The nuns at St. John's have an outstanding collection of icons and have a bakery with the best baklava in the states. I am anxious and hungry at the same time.
