Since we moved in August, we’ve been trying to find a good spot nearby to take the dog on longer walks. We recently found out about Tyron Creek State Park about ten minutes from our house and it’s so nice. I brought my camera two weeks ago and walked a big loop (listening to Dirty John 😱). The next day we gave Mount St. Helens a third try, and this time went to the Johnson Ridge Observatory. It was mid-day, so we couldn’t really see a whole lot through the clouds, but it was still pretty incredible. We walked around Coldwater Lake – the boardwalk there is really neat.
Dan gets in to Portland tomorrow, and then we’re off to Corvallis for SPE!
