Day 5: The final stretch (Sacramento, CA to Portland, OR) Almost there! With a newfound energy in knowing that there was less than 10 hours left of our adventure, we set out to conquer the road. Our route was from Sacramento, CA to the final destination of Portland, OR and the sights in-between were simply breathtaking. Everything from northern California and up was nothing but rolling green hills, mountains (Mount Shasta shown in the photos), and winding curves. As we made our way into Oregon (yay!) the scenery changed to lush green hills upon hills of tall trees that varied in all different shades in the setting sun. Just after sunset we made our way into the city of Portland and found our destination! Thank you all for following along in this 5-day journey and keep following #designaglowdiaries as we explore Portland and more of our team starts their trip!
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
