I love Oregon! It is one of my two favorite states (North Carolina is the other). It is so green and lush. Oregon is home to a gorgeous coastline, beautiful mountains, the Columbia River Gorge, and interesting desert-type areas in the east. It is all amazing and beautiful!
In addition to all of these fantastic wonders, I have some beloved family here in the Portland area. We have been having a wonderful time with my Uncle, Aunt, and cousin. This is our fist time back since we lived out here (2001-2002), and we are making the most of our visit. Friday night was dinner with family – delicious food and great conversation. Then yesterday, we visited the lovely and amazing Multnomah Falls with my aunt and cousin, followed by lunch in Hood River. It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time!

Late in the afternoon, Nick and I went for a hike at the Mark O. Hatfield Trailhead to the Twin Tunnels. The view of the Columbia River was quite lovely!
