Our week away is winding down, but we did manage to sneak in a trip to Timberline Lodge. This is one amazing lodge! It was a make-work project back in FDR’s day and employed many craftsmen and artisans. Many of the huge beams were hand-hewed and there are carvings of animals and artifacts all over the place. Today it is a world-class lodge and a historical sight, and a recent recipient of stimulus funds. I guess all the snowboarders from California aren’t stimulating enough. The day we were there, Timberline was packed.

You may recognize the exterior of Timberline; it was where Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall took the family for the winter in Stephen King’s The Shining (1980).
