Our neck of the woods!

So, on Saturday, just kind of spur of the moment, we decided to take a little drive out to Silver Creek Falls State Park. This beautiful piece of God's creation is just a 30 minute drive from us and holds special memories for Billy and I.

I guess you could say, it's where it all began:)

First Valentine's
First Kiss
First Dance

...and a promise.

We didn't have near enough time to take it all in this time around, but we'll go back, of course. Many times. I hope you enjoy the amazing scenery and fall colors as much as we did! ...and sorry, but I just couldn't pick a few...

Yes, Central Oregon, we have FIELDS of christmas trees to choose from:)

See that little pile of rocks, and, now, overgrown bushes?? That's where Billy proposed! Right at the top of the South Fall.

The top of the falls...

On our way down to the South Fall.

Beautiful. and yes, that's people behind the falls and that's where we're headed!

The "caves" behind the falls.:)

You can feel the mist. Very cool.
Too close of a close-up for my face, and what does THAT look mean, Billy?

Hiking back out...a look back.

Just thought it was a pretty bridge.

Great pictures, Cathy. I still remember sitting in the fireside room at Grace and Billy coming in with you right on his heels--introducing you to us for the first time. I remember you had long red hair at the time, seems forever ago and now look at those beautiful children!

Beautiful pics of Silver Falls and of the cute family in them!! Ever gone camping around there? We have talked about making that area a camping trip. I think it is so precious to go back to where your husband proposed. Ours is Canon Beach, a little further away but we have gone back several times over the last 15 years. Hope all is well.
