I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

Pinard Falls

As you know, I am not a professional photographer. What I do is explore around the area in which I live and commune with my God. I love adventure and sometimes can be a bit careless and haphazard in the way I do it. I am always well prepared food wise for the family, (whom, by the way loves it all as much as I do), I make sure the children are properly attired and slathered in sunscreen if needed. I am not however that prepared for myself or my camera. There have been times I have driven miles to a destination, only to realize I have no card in my camera or case.Or another time pretty recently , that I ended up doing the entire hike barefoot due to lack of proper non slipping shoes. It becomes a huge DUH moment; I still go exploring, soaking up the peace and beauty of the  area. (After I get done kicking myself.) I generally come home a different person in one way or another. The photos you will see in these next 3 blogs are of many things, some things I have taken several shots of from different perspectives. In the way of nature I can rarely get to the perfect spot for the perfect shot. It may all seem a bit repetitive my hope is that you will be able to see what we saw,  feeling a some of what I felt as well.

These were all taken out a logging road,( partially paved), out side of Cottage Grove, Oregon  about 30 miles or coming from the other way 10 miles out of Oakridge, Oregon on a gravel road, we made a loop. It was a beautiful day.

We saw Pinard Falls, Moonfalls, and Spirit Falls, of course being who I am, I didn't investigate far enough and we did the toughest trail first, then the easiest , and last the in between difficulty. Randy, Tristyn and Kenny, made  it down and up the first trail. A half mile nearly straight down and of course straight up on the way back. Afterwards the would explore with me no further...Kearstyn is a trooper though, we traversed the other trails with no serious issues. Although my legs were quite sore the next day, I waited a day to do our usual 3 mile walk and my 2 miles bike ride. We are back on it now though and the kids are swimming too.

Here is what we saw just before Pinard Falls and at the falls.
