Oregon Trip

Two and a half weeks of fun with my son.  I had such a great time and made so many fabulous memories.  He is a wonderful man and so much fun to be with.

On the way up I took some pictures of the scenery in Northern California.  Love the snow on Mt. Shasta.  Just as I left home the temps soared into the 110's, so it was so nice to be in cooler weather.


Bend turned the old mill into a fabulous restaurant and shop area.  I had lunch with a friend and totally enjoyed  looking at the Deschutes river and the snowcaps of Three Sisters mountains.


A trip to Sisters, Oregon is always a must.  Cute little town turned into mostly tourist traps and antique stores.  Hasn't changed much in the 30 years since I lived in Oregon.




There are so many gorgeous lakes and camping places in central oregon, it is always a must to go for a ride and see some of the fabulous scenery.  We decided to go up to Paulina Lake, this is a waterfalls you pass on the way.  Unreal beautiful.  The water split and forms two falls.


This is my son with one of his favorite toys.  He got it out and washed, ready for some fun.  Sad to leave him, but I had such a great time.

Precious memories of time spent - just mom and son.  I love your Chuck.

See you later this afternoon for Inspire Me.  Can't wait to see all your latest projects.

  8. Now I need a trip to Oregon. Bend/Sisters/Sunriver area is a real gem. Spent a week in Sunriver last Oct and of course spent time in the other areas. Truly a beautiful state. There's a shop in Sisters full of leather, Pendelton blankets, clothing, really beautiful stuff, bought a great leather handbag.Love the drive between Bend and Salem so pretty.

  11. A visit with family is always a blessing. Glad you had such a great time. I've never been to that part of our great country so really enjoyed seeing the pictures. The mountains with the snow look inviting on a hot day like we are having, still I'd rather have summer than winter for sure.

  13. Hi Marty,
    Yes, Mt Shasta is a beauty. In the winter when the sun shines on her, she is a diamond in the sky. Your journey up I-5 took you right by my house. You were truly blessed driving thru Redding this time of year. We usually have very hot weather. But we have had a cooling trend this year and my plants and I love it.

  14. Oh dear Marty, what a great trip! I've never been in Mt. Shasta and it looks amazing, along with the wáter falls and I'm so happy you could spend time one on one with your dear son. We mother's love to spend time with our children, it's simply the best in life for us, right? Your son's toy is gorgeous too! Big hugs,
    FABBY

  16. I just had to add my "two cents worth".....your pictures say it all. Oregon is the second most beautiful place in the world. The first? Of course, Northern coastal California....it looks just the same. So glad you had a wonderful visit. You deserve it. What a wonderful lady you are.

  17. We live near the Oregon coast so I'm familiar with some of the places you visited. I've never been to Paulina Lake and I'm not familiar with that amazing waterfall either. We'll have to check it out. It sounds like you had a lovely time and thanks for sharing!

  20. Marty so glad you had a great time with Chuck! Oregon is a lovely place to be sure! So is he living up there now- I guess I hadn't realized he had moved from AZ.

    We are in the midst of a wild fire since Wed. 13,388 acres so for.We are still in pre- evacuation status but think they may change that soon hopefully!

    bee blessed

  25. I spent part of my very early childhood in Oregon. I love it. It's a fantastic state. We could see Mt. Hood from out home. I would love to go back again one day. Perhaps I will get to.
