An Oregon Road Trip – Nov 04 2018

Painted Hills, Oregon
Oregon in a weekend

I’m still reeling after the weekend. How could I have forgotten that I live in one of the most beautiful places in the USA? I spent 80% of my summer in different states so this weekend was truly a reminder of what a playground Oregon is. That you can take off without a plan and land in literally a magical place is incredible. No signal. No crazies. No stress. The last couple of weeks (or months really) have been pretty¬† hectic so when himself asked ‘What do you want to do this weekend?’, my immediate thought was, switch off.

Memorial Weekend – 1 Year Anniversary

Memorial Weekend

I can’t believe that a year has passed already since my move to Portland. Time has gone so fast and I can nearly say to the hour of the day what I was doing this time last year (chilling out with my cousin in Newport! ūüôā ). I had moved here right on Memorial weekend and my timing couldn’t of been better. Last year I did the Rose Festival thing and drank my way through all of the breweries the city had to offer. 2017’s weekend went slightly different.

Winter in Oregon

Snow Snow Snow

So far I (mostly) love the winter in Oregon. It has been bitter cold but I had my first snow day last week and it was magical outside! There was weather warnings and all but to be honest, I didn’t pay any attention. Then, out of nowhere – BAM everything was white! I finished up early at work and headed home where there was an eggnog and snack party going on – love that! Everything froze over that night so it was another work from home day on Friday but everything was sooooo pretty!

Hiking and Grooving Outside

Seaside, Oregon

Agghhh things have been so busy lately I haven’t been able to keep up! I’m a couple weeks behind on this so I’m placing this post back to Saturday the 22nd of October. My friend Millie who I met when I was in Thailand came to visit for the week and what a great (but crazy!) time!

Mount Hood

On Saturday, we drove out to Mount Hood and hiked the Eagle Creek Trailhead to Tunnel Falls. The¬†trip out is just stunning, passing Multnomagh Falls and driving alongside ¬†the Columbia River Gorge ¬†while taking in the gorgeous fall season is incredible. ¬†We started off our hike at the Eagle Creek Trailhead and 2 miles in we reached Punchbowl Falls. We continued on and arrived at the High Bridge (about 3.3 miles in). Just as we hit the 6 mile mark we turned around the corner and found ourselves gawking at the 175ft Tunnel Falls. It’s one of the best I’ve ever seen!
