    Two day in Crater Lake National Park

    The first destination on our trip last summer was Crater Lake National Park. The trip started the first day by leaving Utah and making the 12 hour drive to Lakeview, Oregon.

    First backpacking trip into Orgeon

    The fires this year pushed us out of a couple different places that we wanted to go for our Fall Campout. Luckily I have a long list of places I want to go. Northeastern Oregon had dodged the fires this year and so we made our way down to Troy, Oregon to hike the Wenaha River Trail. I had...

    Oregon: Earth, Wind, Fire, and Rain...not in that order

    Since I had to speak at a conference in Portland this month, we decided to make a road trip out of it and stop along the way to enjoy some of the sights and trails of our neighbor to the North. As usual, all did not go according to plan! We began with a long drive from Napa to Bend, through a...

    Smith Rock State Park, Oregon

    Ran up to Bend last week to visit the High Desert Museum. Time was short and snow's still packed up on the Cascades, so hiking options were limited. I ended up taking an afternoon walk around Smith Rock State Park, a popular rock climbing destination north of Redmond. Daylight was already...

    Oneonta Gorge Oregon

    Another hike from my trip to Oregon. Also cross posted from my blog at www.livevicariouslythroughus.blogspot.com I'm a big fan of slot canyons. As I was researching for the trip, I stumbled on a picture of Oneonta Gorge. It immediately went on the "MUST DO" list for while we were in Oregon...

    Trail of Ten Falls- Silver Falls State Park, Oregon

    Posted from my blog at www.livevicariouslythroughus.blogspot.com The next stop on our Oregon trip was at Silver Falls State Park. It's a beautiful and peaceful park, about 30 miles east of Salem. I'm sure it's crowded on the weekends, but in the middle of the week it was very crowd-free. We...
