|This is the Deadman Pass area of Cabbage Hill, near Pendleton, Oregon.The beauty of this landscape belies its reputation, one nearly all long-haul truckers know.|
From the forested summit of the Blue Mountains, Interstate 84 snakes down a long, treacherous grade that is infamous for burning up truck brakes. It's wise to keep an eye in your rear-view mirror for runaways. I've often seen acrid-smelling blue smoke boiling from the wheels of the semis, and imagined a hard-bitten driver behind the wheel mouthing fervent prayers under his breath.
A popular T-shirt in the truck-stop gift shop at the base of the mountain says it all: "I survived Cabbage Hill."
Beautiful painting Don! welcome back to the northwest
Hi Robin, thanks for your nice comment and warm welcome--its good to be back.
Love the warm colors you used in this painting.
I like this one very much Don.
I've been over Cabbage many times to see family in Kennewick...you've really captured that "edge of the world" feeling that one gets up there. It's really a unique pass. Welcome back to the area.
Thanks Kim, Triecia and Zack for stopping by. I do appreciate your comments.
