Deschutes River Park*










*a.k.a. How I Caught the Camping Bug, 2010. The van detailed with a child's illustrations parked next to our campsite, the long bike trail that wound along the river taking us past old box cars and a decaying homestead site, unbelievable light on the Deschutes, escape from Portland's rain... I loved it all. And I want more. I hereby declare this our summer of camping.

Declarations are good. Love these images, it looks absolutely amazing. I may have to widen my focus in Oregon beyond Portland.

I absolutely adore Historic Photo signs...I don't know why, but they totally crack me up. I'm also the person who can sometimes silently pout if they can't get out at a "Historical Marker" as well...
