Beautiful Oregon!

I just got home yesterday from the most wonderful trip to Oregon! I went there to visit some friends and it was just such an overwhelmingly enjoyable and happy experience! Highlights were the hiking trails at Crater Lake.

These pinnacles are awesome rock formations! And such a long ways down - don't fall!

Plaikni Falls
This waterfall was definitely worth the two mile hike! So lovely!

Phantom Ship

So, so beautiful!

Such blue water!
I'm glad we hiked down Cleetwood Cove, to the water edge, where we stuck our feet in and just enjoyed an amazing day with sun and a breeze!

Ooh, water access at the bottom of the Cleetwood Cove trail!
Yaquina Head Lighthouse

Tide pools! So many fun creatures!

Yaquina Bay Bridge
Driving through Oregon is so amazing, because the scenery, even along the interstate is so gorgeous! Other highlights included going to the Rogue Brewery in Newport, seeing little towns of Roseburg, Corvallis, Eugene, and Newport; the Oregonian coast especially the Yaquina Head Lighthouse and the tide pools there, and just hanging out with my friend is such a relaxing environment!

I'm back home now, but I already miss Oregon so much!

I hope everyone had at least close to as amazing of a weekend as I had! :)
