This is where I had my revelation that New Jersey was dead to me. The expanse and power of the wind being pulled from the Gorge. The are only a few things in my memories that leave me speechless...all of which require a considerable drive to observe. There is nearly nothing in New Jersey that is as humbling as this...with the stark exception of one thing. Hurricane Sandy. That was so utterly incredible and devastating simultaneously. To witness first hand the power of a world I could no longer say I shared. I just happen to live in it. So it certainly begs to ask if Oregon possesses so much beauty that exists as a sort of present "potential" energy to be observed. What is Oregon capable of when it wants to show me it's "Sandy" level of humility or active "kinetic" energy?
