A journalistic post // Salt Creek Falls

Last Monday, we decided to explore Salt Creek Falls, a new area to us that is just under an hour away. We nonchalantly parked and started down a small trail towards the sound of a waterfall. But we were unprepared for the beauty of this place. That unassuming trail opened up to the grandest scene. One that made me say to my husband-- can you take my picture in this place? And I proceeded to throw my hands up into the air with the biggest smile on my face, the freest feeling in my heart and soul. The outcome? I looked like a complete nincompoop. So, I chose to show you some other pictures from our day instead. 

But I think you'll agree, even though I am biased towards Oregon's wonder, that the scenes of this place will make your Thursday a little more beauty filled. Come visit us and we'll take you here. Until next time, Salt Creek Falls_______ Over and out.

    1. I promise, my sweet friend, it was quite hilariously awful : ) But appreciate your optimism : ) I've been thinking of you a lot, praying that God would give a wonderful delivery for baby Barker. Sooo looking forward to hearing about it and meeting him via pictures.

    1. Sara,
      I know! Seriously, this world is so beautiful. I just read a comment somewhere that said something about how much God must love the color green. It made me smile. What a God we serve.

      I love those shorts too. Old Navy, of course : )

    1. Ahaha! Welllllll. . .yes, there wasn't really a hike. A little jog, really. But it was the perfect thing for our little guys. Very pretty. I'd recommend it along with stopping at one of the last original operating A&W Rootbeer stands along the way. Awesome!

  4. I found your blog through PDXbloggers.com and I'm so happy I did! This is beautiful. My boyfriend and I are planning on moving up there from Southern California, next Summer! This post is itching my feet to move sooner!

    Thanks for this! :)

    1. Jayna,

      Thanks so much for taking a minute to tell me about your move! You will love it here. And, here's my advice to anyone moving to the pacific northwest (but especially to you coming from sunny California-- and this comes from a born and raised California girl herself!) -- try your very best to find a place with wonderful natural lighting. Although I believe the pnw is the best, it can get dreary during the long, rainy winter months. And, coming from an area with lots of sun, you'll crave it. I think living in a home with beautiful natural light has saved my sanity many, many times!

      K. I'm stepping off of my soap box now! : )
      Good luck in your move here! And, welcome!

  6. Andrea,

    I'm so glad you love Oregon. It's pretty difficult not to love it, I think! Yes! Come back and we will have a coffee date!
