Some Highlights of OREGON

Here are just a few pictures of our time in Oregon. I have tons more and I hope to do something with them after they get organized, but that may take some time. But this is just a taste of some of the things we did and who we spent time with.

Time with relatives in Tualatin. Dan's cousins.
Some falls we were told about - Silver Falls - where there are several falls you can see as you walk a trail around the area. This one is South Falls (177 feet). Can you see Dan on the left in the blue (really tiny)? We went behind it and got some video of this. We drove to several of the falls and got a few pictures and videos. I'll try to get some of that online in the next week or so.
Time with Danielle, her boyfriend, Steven, and girlfriend, Natalia.The Oregon Coast...specifically Newport, OR. We just missed touring the aquarium.

Mt. Hood as we drove around. It could be seen almost everywhere we drove. I wish I would have taken a picture of Mt. Hood from the airplane.

Even though I fell and hurt my rib (such a klutz!), I was able to enjoy most of the trip. I was careful walking around the rocks at the beach and just tried not to exert myself too much. Rested as much as I could. Had some good alone time with Danielle as well as with her friends.

Oh, and I have to add this picture. We reunited with Pretzel, Danielle's first cat. I miss him, and even though Dan says he doesn't miss Pretz, he sure spent time petting him when he came up to him. ;)
