nowhere : our somewhere

McDowell Creek Falls Park in Lebanon, Oregon.  What a beautiful place, new to us.  Steep trail, gurgling stream, gentle waterfalls, thick forest, and all kinds of moss and lichen.  We picnicked at the top of a waterfall, counted rings on felled trees, raced across bridges, and softly peeked under piles of leaves.  We felt in the middle of nowhere but somewhere we so wanted to be. 


  1. Looks beautiful! I will put it on my list of places to explore!

  2. Erin - it's gorgeous! Also, the drive there (not the hwy) is really nice, too. :)
