Silver Falls

When I heard it was to be another beautiful day a week ago Thursday I  messaged a friend who recently moved to Oregon: did she want to go with me to the Silver Falls State Park?

It’s not often I take an entire day off from work so the day of fresh air, sunshine, exercise, and nature was a much needed change of pace and rejuvenation.

South Falls
The Canyon Trail taking us behind South Falls
The slant of sun on the moss and Autumn foliage.

A number of times I swim in that pool, below when I was young. Cold and  refreshing!A spindle and cotton accompanied the walk.
Except there was too much to see!

Approaching Lower South Falls. Stepping stones for dry passage behind L.South Falls. 
Someone in a white jacket easing their way across the stones behind the falling curtain.
Grateful for State Parks
Grateful for health to enjoy the walk
Grateful to live in an area with so much natural beauty!

Grateful that while the clock points to almost 10pm, it will be set back an hour so I’m really going to bed at 9.

I never dreamed my life would be entangled with fiber and the tools used to produce fibery items. When I bought a boat shuttle used in weaving Ed looked at it, decided to make a better one and the rest is history. For a decade he made shuttles, crochet hooks, knitting needles, until his spindles became so popular that he had to devote his time to making them, as well as Walking Wheels. Free time is spent reading, trying to coax food from the ground, and playing in the creek near our place. I love long walks and camping far from crowds. Playing a fiddle beside a stream or with good friends brings sweetness to my soul. Sundays are set aside for worshiping God with our small Quaker meeting.

    1. Susan has come to Black Sheep Gathering, and she’s visited us a couple of times and now that they’ve moved to the area she’s eager to soak in the beauty.
      Brrr is right. We’d come out of the water purple-tinged, covered in goose-bumps. We loved it!

  1. So beautiful! I love the sunlight falling through the autumn leaves and moss. I’m glad you could take a day to rejuvenate your spirit in the lovely outdoors.
