This week, we hopped in the Jeep and headed out to Silver Falls State Park for a little hiking and getting our fill of that oh-my-gosh-we-live-in-Oregon thing!!! Here’s the story:
The day started off with a visit to the Gordon House. In case you don’t know, Jimmy has his masters in architecture, so after finding out there is a Frank Lloyd Wright home in Oregon, we had to go! This was my first time visiting a Frank Lloyd Wright home, so it was pretty cool to see in person.
Here’s J on the grounds.
After the Gordon House, we continued driving through the Oregon countryside … It felt a bit like Indiana.
Of course we had to take a shot of J’s shoes!
Right inside the park, there’s a beautiful overlook. We decided to stop there to have a picnic & enjoy the beautiful, sunny day!
We took advantage of the view & snapped a few photos of us together. A rarity!
After lunch, we headed over to the falls … The sun that day made the areas around the falls so beautiful. It was dreamy & illuminated!
The water is SOOO blue! Right after this, we had to put the camera away because we WALKED BEHIND THE WATERFALL!!! Such a cool experience. I never imagined that we’d be able to walk behind the falls. The power of the falls can be felt in your chest & the mist coming off of the falls is so refreshing.

Another waterfall … More super blue water!
After the hike, we headed back to the overlook just as the sun was setting.
The drive home that day was really nice. We played loud music & watched the sun set over the mountains in the distance. Love this last shot that J grabbed of this little flock of birds.
