My hubby & I spent the weekend communing with nature, our happy place! I'm constantly in awe of Oregon, just flat out, jaws dropped to the floor by the seemingly endless abundance of nature all around. We hiked along the beautiful Clackamas River on National Trails Day with not another human in sight and the next day went to check out Silver Falls State Park. We saw 6 healthy waterfalls in a day's hike ranging from 30 to 178 ft. all with amazing velocity causing a sweet 'waterfall breeze' to cool us on our path. So very very fortunate to be living amongst the great wisdom of nature. Here are some moments captured along the way... Happy Monday!

You Reading This: Stop ~ William Stafford
Don't just stay tangled up in your life. Out there in some river or cave where you could have been, some absolute, lonely dawn may arrive and begin the story that means what everything is about.
So don't just look, either: let your whole self drift like a breath and learn its way down through the trees. Let that fine waterfall-smoke filter its gone, magnified presence all through the forest. Stand here till all that you were can wander away and come back slowly, carrying a strange new flavor into your life. Feel it? That's what we mean. So don't just read this—rub your thought over it.
Now you can go on.
