Wildflowers and water/falls

In spite of our colder and wetter than average spring, we were blessed with dry weather the last two Sabbaths. On the 15th we met up with friends to ride the ferry over the river to Willamette Mission State Park, where dogs are allowed – and were well represented in our group!

On the 22nd, our church's social committee organized a hike followed by vespers at Silver Creek State Park. This gorgeous place deserves its title as the crown jewel of our state parks system. All the falls were gushing magnificently, and wildflowers were blooming everywhere. How fitting that this hike also fell on Earth Day!

there's a trail behind this one, too

biggity to see the hillside trail, upon which I slipped and got a muddy butt

check out the people on the path behind this one, too
for scale, this waterfall is well behind the people on the path

I hope you enjoyed this photo dump from two of our local state parks. We do live in a spectacular part of the country!

That's it for now from . . .
