Our visit from Dex and the week of vacation we took together was so special that I'm having trouble with the words to describe it. I think I need time to process the depth of feelings and fun that Dex, Michael, and I shared. Images I took will have to do for now.
The first three shots were taken on Dex's first day in Oregon. We are standing in the backyard of The Pittock Mansion in Portland, a property that offers amazing views of the city and Mount Hood in one direction and Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens in another.
The next day we went to Silver Falls State Park, Oregon's largest state park at 8000 acres and only 14 miles from our home in Silverton. Having had such a rainy spring the falls were especially spectacular.
I loved viewing all this beauty as if for the first time that day.
