Oregon


John had some CE's to do in the Portland area, so we took a short weekend trip over and stopped at Multalomah Falls on the way. It is the 2nd largest continuous waterfall in the nation, and just outside of Portland. It was beautiful. It was only a short easy hike to the bridge and then we continued up to the top which is about a mile. It wasn't too bad of a hike either (except for the 100 degree weather..even in the shade it was pretty bad), Coming down killed me because I was wearing flip flops. I brought tennies but when I saw so many other people in sandals, I followed the crowd. We thought it was just so beautiful on the western side of Oregon. It was hard to come back to our dry brown part of the world.

Beautiful pictures! So green. Kelsi is growing up so fast and look at all of that hair she is getting. How is Alli? It was fun to see a picture of you two--brought back some fun memories.
