We have many wonderful waterfalls in Oregon. Some are in remote places and others are very easy to get to. It is always an adventure to head to the countryside to spend the day visiting mother nature and take a hike. Oregon waterfalls are icing on the cake at the end of the hike.

Bridal Veil Falls is just one of the many waterfalls to embrace here in Oregon. It is a short hike about 0.6 mile round trip hike. It will get your heart to pumping on the way back to the parking lot. It is all up hill.

There are benches for those of you who would like to stop and enjoy the woods and take a break.

This is a fun hike with a great view of the waterfall when you reach the end of the trail.

We know during winter the weather can give us some ups and downs. The last few years our Oregon weather has been very mild when it comes to storms.  This last week we have been experiencing those wind and rainy storms that remind us of 1996/1997. Many of our small communities have had flooding from the rivers, streams and creeks that are within our beautiful state.

We know that we need the rain during the winter and spring months. It helps to bring snow into our mountain ranges. Those snow packs help us with our water supplies throughout the state. The snow packs also help to prevent forest fires during the summer months. Which is a very good thing. We here in Oregon are big for the outdoors. Spending time in our forests and enjoying outdoor sports are a life style for us. We need the snow in the mountains to have fun in the summer.

In the mean time we sometimes experience those creeks, rivers and streams to over flow their banks. We come together with neighbors to help out those who need help during these times. To help those small business owners who need us to be patrons as they rebuild their businesses after being flooded.

So, please remember those who are in your neighborhoods who need a helping hand during this time. They may not ask but reach out to see if there is something you can do. You may not have money to give but, you may be able to give some blankets, clothes or even some food from your cupboards that could help. You could even give an hour or two to pitch in and do some cleaning. We have many elderly folks in our neighborhoods who would love to see you stop by to help to rake some leaves.

Enjoy giving and helping those who need you!

As we travel around Oregon this time of the year we find the fall colors. The leaves shine in the fall sunlight with bright reds, yellows, oranges and greens.

Sumpter Fall Foliage

The fall Oregon weather gives us cool nights and warm days which allows us to take wonderful walks and drives through our quaint neighborhoods, parks and forests. The view of the mountains and its colorful foliage are something to embrace.
