Since Spring has sprung and work has eased up, it's been fun getting out and about and enjoy the beautiful sights here in Oregon. Last weekend we hiked the trails around McDowell Creek Falls so thought we'd take you along too! The first stop is a teaser of the falls to come...
Because the next stop is the Royal Terrace Falls which are 119 ft high...
And of course McDowell Creek...
And then Majestic Falls at 39 ft high...
We even saw a tourist from Kansas so we took a picture of him taking a picture!
Actually the tourist is my dad - he was here petsitting Angel, Isabella and Sadie while we were in Colorado for a few days (thanks Dad!) and he took the time to enjoy our beautiful state!

Hope you enjoyed this brief glimpse of some of the Spring sights here in Oregon!
Have a great Sunday!

PeeEss: Thanks for staying with us Grandpa! We miss you!
Sadie, Isabella and Angel!

How beautiful! Oregon is one of my favorite states and you're so fortunate to live there. Looking forward to many, many more scenic pictures.

How pretty. Isn't Spring wonderful? said... April 25, 2010 at 6:30 AM

Oh I love your water fall photos. The two things I miss since moving to Cape Cod are waterfalls and leaves on the trees. We are pretty flat and we have too many scrub pines.
