A step back

On Sabbath afternoon a group of us took advantage of the lovely weather and a free day-use day to visit Champoeg State Park. This special park was the "birthplace" of our state, and we all enjoyed the history lessons, a long walk, and the many wildflowers in bloom. So – you know – I had to share our enjoyment with you!
This black cottonwood was a silent witness to the signing
of Oregon's first provisional government in 1843
Fun photog friends who forgot their "real" cameras
Friendly California ground squirrel begging for goodies (we had none)

That's it for today from . . .

I have never been there, though I've driven by a number of times. I always wondered how to say that (as a transplant, I waited to hear someone else say words like "Siuslaw" or "Yaquina"), and was surprised at the pronunciation. Shampooee!!

What lovely photographs as usual, Michelle. What a great way to spend a Sabbath afternoon.
