Chasing Waterfalls

Multnomah_Falls_Portland_Oregon

Hello long lost friends!

I’m alive! I’m finally settling in after a whirlwind of moving (still in KC, just a different place!) and back-to-back trips.

One of those trips was to Portland, Oregon, one of the most beautiful places I’ve been! (Ok, so I say that about everywhere I go…but this one really deserved it!)

I worked outside of the city, so I didn’t see much of Portland, but I did make it to beautiful Multnomah Falls!

Here are a few pics of the falls…

I was even impressed by this little mini-waterfall off to the side of the main falls. (Oddly, I was the only person on the observation deck taking photos of the mini falls…oh well.) Check it out:

See it? You kinda have to squint…

That’s all for now, but I’ll be back soon with more!

The Lost Photos, Part I: Oregon

Today marks Part I of the “lost photos,” which is really just code for pictures I’ve taken and never posted here on MWB! Thankfully, today is your lucky day because I’ve dug these photos out from deep within the depths of my iPhone album.

Part I begins with Oregon, one of the most beautiful places I’ve been.

I usually stalk places I go on Google so I have an idea of what they look like, where to eat, etc., but I was in the middle of back-to-back trips when I went to Oregon, so I just showed up and was amazed!

I flew into Eugene, south of Portland, and grabbed an early dinner at a place called Newman’s Fish Co. I’m from land locked Kansas, so I jump on the opportunity to get fresh seafood when I go anywhere remotely close to an ocean (or the Delaware River, which I mistook for the ocean in this post.)

From Eugene, I drove an hour south to Roseburg, Oregon. Roseburg is only a short drive from Umpqua National Forest, which is where I took all the pictures in this post!

Sadly, by the time I arrived, it was almost dusk and I was alone and without cell phone reception – all the makings of a scary movie – so I settled for taking most of these pictures at scenic overlooks, where there was safety in numbers.

I’d love to go back with more time to see Umpqua, and make it to the Oregon coast which I hear is equally beautiful!

That’s all for now but I’ll be back soon with more “lost” photos!
