Traveling North on I-5

When we lived in Roseburg 17 years ago, it was a common affair for the four of us to pile into the car and drive North to visit extended family.
This evening, on the drive back from taking Fran and Izzy to meet Jonathon in Roseburg, I was reminded of one of my favorite parts of that drive and my favorite time to see it: between the turn-off for Anlauf & Lorane and a few miles south of Cottage Grove; about an hour or less before sunset.
I love the tall, green, evergreen trees that cover the hills, crowded around that curvy stretch of interstate 5. As the last bit of sunlight slants across and turns the tops of those trees golden green--even better.
