Dusk Over Jonsrud Viewpoint


A bit of a Throwback Thursday post today. I took this photo the last time we had a clear sky. It seems like forever, even though it was only about 10 days ago! The pounding rains and thick cloud cover have prevented us from being able to see Mt. Hood. I am sure all the foothills are covered in snow now, but there is no end to our wintery rains in sight, so it may be a while before I can confirm the new snowfall. I hope to head up there soon and check out the conditions first hand!

South Falls Through The Mist


My son and I traveled down to Silver Falls State Park this past weekend with family friends to check out their Christmas Festival. It was awful. Do not go. Ok, I lie. I only say this because I want to keep this little gem of a festival a secret! It was pretty wonderful actually. They had tons of crafts and goodies for the kids, live music, and one of the most amazing Santa Claus. He had the genuine twinkle in his eye as he sat with the kids and took their holiday wishes. We also did the hike down to the bottom of the raging South Falls. The clouds and fog was so thick when we made it down there! This is the very misty view from the footbridge that crosses Silver Creek, which was so swollen it was like a river!
