Spring Break '10
This past week has been spring break vacation for me which means NO SCHOOL and nothing but fun stuff day after day. There were parties, and bicycling, and ice-cream and bowling and movies, etcetera and etc. The best day was by far the day we drove out toward Salem to Silver Falls. It was the most prettiest best weatherest day of the year so far. Just perfectly sunny with warm and cool air mixing around your skin making you feel better than you've ever felt.
This is on the way up. Quite a spread! Dad was pricing horse farms in his dream mind.
First things first: find your walking stick.
Next, open your eyes and open your mind to the beauty that can only be found in nature.
There are 10 different waterfalls in Silver Falls park, this is just one of them.
You get to walk behind the waterfalls too which is an angle seldom seen by the average waterfall enthusiast.
Drawing near yet another gorgeous waterfall...
This is over a mile in. I did the whole hike with gusto and only got tired near the very end and still even then I kept on.
Taking breaks to breathe it all in or stop and have a pb&j and an apple make it all nice and easy.
Looking at the douglas fir from behind another glorious curtain of fresh mountain water...Oregon we love you!
It's a view that makes you really ponder the greater things in life and send wishes up to the gods.
Really one of the nicest way to spend an afternoon. We had such a great family day.
Take that Daytona Beach!
