An Eastern Oregon Memory from Russ Roca on Vimeo.

It feels like ages since we were out on the road in Eastern Oregon. The grey skies of Portland are making us long for sunny days and wide open roads. I got an email this afternoon from a reader turned friend from Denton, Texas. He’s a talented musician and sent me a couple of tracks that he recorded in his living room. One wisp of a song called “Gravel” really hit me with a mix of wanderlust and sadness. I fired up Final Cut and put together a little montage to the music. Perhaps as a reminder that though the sky is grey and our pockets a little thin, we’ve had some great adventures and more await us in the future.
