Indian Plum


Things are starting to look a little more "spring-y" around here! There are green shoots on some plants, and I even spotted these pretty little white Indian Plum blossoms while on a walk. I have to admit, I was pretty excited. Signs of spring let me know that this long winter season is almost ending!

Wintery Reflection


I discovered a great new urban park this past weekend. The trails that wind through the Bybee and Smith Lakes Wetlands are dog and bike free, which is great for me to take my son on for a wooded adventure. At the very end of the trail there was this beautiful view, accentuated by the mirror-like water.

Winter Day at Silver Falls


I always take so many photos when I visit anywhere, and sometimes do not get a chance to post all of my favorites from a trip. I try to remember to come back a few weeks later and share other views, particularly when I have visited a pretty location like Silver Falls State Park. I took this photo of South Falls last month.

Bright Lichen


It was nice to see this pop of color in an otherwise pretty dormant grey and brown winter environment when I went on my weekend hike yesterday. The bare tree branches were all covered in this bright orange lichen.
