A most romantic getaway
Oh the things good nights sleep can do for you!!! We awoke feeling rested, happy, and read to start the day. We had a delicious breakfast with Allison at a bagel shop just around the corner from their house. Allison drove us to the airport where we hit our first honeymoon roadblock... The rental car place was a nightmare and would not honor the price originally quoted. After calling around for plane tickets, train tickets, Allison rides, and other rental companies, we found a car and a company that wouldn't charge us $500 for a one way drop (Yikes!!!)
We drove up the 5 through Northern California, and watched as the landscape changed into beautiful Mt. Shasta. I have never driven this far North and it was amazing to see the mountain peak covered with snow sprout up from the rolling green hills.
We found an AMAZING cabin just east of Ashland Oregon to stay for the night. This place is fantastic and if you ever find yourself in the Ashland area we highly recommend it. The cabin is beautiful with cathedral ceilings, gorgeous views, and a private hot tub on the deck that looks out over the forest. There is a restaurant at the lodge where Phil and I had dinner last night and even the food was amazing! pasta for me and a burger on a homemade bun for my hubby. They had some local brews on tap which was a treat, and we were even able to take some back to our cabin to enjoy in the hot tub.
