Emeryville, CA -> Portland, OR
To be honest, most of that trip was a night. Which was cool considering it was 17hours long and I was exhausted. It was also a couple hours late.
But in the morning I got to see a bit of Northern California, and, mostly, Oregon.
This time, I wasn’t so lucky and the beautiful mountains got replaced by fields and dirty windows.
