driving through a winter wonderland....

for 11 months out of the years, it's just a raceway for car races
(which i can't stand, by the way).
but, for the holidays season, it's a drive-thru light show!
for many years now, my family and i have made it a tradition to go see
the portland raceway christmas lights.
it is so fun to bundle up, make up some hot chocolate in thermoses, cram into a van, and drive around the track looking at the amazing lights.
here is just a portion of what we saw.
oh, and a little tip...
pitch black car + one powerful flash on a camera=
hilarious pictures!
