In 2007, I had a chance to spend a whole day just driving. The sun was amazing, the trees were in full October bloom, and the memory stick was empty and ready to be filled!

There is a small place where you can get off the Highway 22 corridor, and I took many shots of the road. It's so quiet, and there are several small houses tucked away where retired folk are lucky enough to live.

When you reach the end of the road, you are at the Santiam River and getting there is half the fun! For those in Oregon, now is the time to visit the area just out of Salem, heading East, between Mill City and Gates. If you have the time, go all the way to Detroit Lake, as the little towns and scenery are amazing!

Growing in the shadowy edges of Shore Acres State Park on the Oregon Coast, these blossoms always take my breath away. The vibrant yellow with the perfectly placed red spots are always great eye candy.


The bees love these bright flowers. They're so colorful, you'd think they belonged in the tropics!

This is a picture we took on Mother's Day. It's on the Minum River in Eastern Oregon. We consider this the lost Garden of Eden.

I found this starfish while beach hopping with my husband near Sunset Beach here on the Oregon Coast. We love to hit up Sunset, hike the trails above the beach, and create our own journey from there.

This is a panoramic shot of Whiskey Run Beach on the Oregon Coast. It's my definition of escape! The beach is where I go to clear my head and pink is my favorite color, only a couple reasons I like this shot.

We live on the water, and within walking distance to the ocean. Every single night I see a new sunset. I was at the stoplight.


I usually carry my camera because I never know what I might see with all this beauty around me.

Wonderful trip to the Oregon Coast with my family. A walk through Cape Perpetua uncovered this huge fallen spruce tree across the path. Awesome walk!
