So, as I did not mention in my last post, I was gone over the weekend because our family went to Oregon.
There was this national shabbat thing going on that was pretty cool and we were planning to go to it for a while.
Turns out, the weekend it was on was my 17th birthday.
It was a little weird because I’ve never celebrated my birthday in the trailer, but it turned out to be awesome. We were near Silver Falls State Park and so we got to go hike around and take pictures.
Plus, I got an awesome camera bag so my camera has a neat little home now. 😀
And the siblings were super sweet with presents. Squink made me a little clay Horatio Hornblower, Isaiah got a little boat for me to put him in, James got a little toy Black Widow, Peter gave me chocolate (hey, can’t go wrong with that) and John and Daniel got me a Lego Dalek and Cyberman.
Little fun things. ❤
Anyway, on to the pictures!
I got a little over 300 on the weekend sooo… *cough* there was some narrowing down to be done.
There were two bluejays and they both were scared of the noise my camera makes when it focuses, so this picture was rather hard won.
Along the path on the way to the waterfalls.
Right over the edge of South Falls.
That ledge is just so cool that it’s coming off of.
Wheee! Commence wiping off camera lens every few minutes as we go behind the waterfall.
And the other side!
Little side path I thought looked cool.
So, it was all foggy in the morning. Then we went back and took a break and it all burned off. So I got different lighting for the next hike. 🙂
Upper North Falls. (Is it just me or does it look like there’s the shadow of a giant next to it?)
And North falls! By far the biggest.
Yes, there were lots more pictures, but these ones probably summed up the park best. 🙂
There were other photo ops on the way back (Salem Riverfront Carousel and a lilac garden) but those shall be saved for other posts.
Hope you enjoyed!
What were your favorite pics? What waterfalls have you been to?
