Moving to Oregon


Evan and I have moved to a little corner of Oregon. It's been a long road to get here: our road trip from Austin included a wedding in Georgia, a vacation in the mountains of North Carolina, a short stay on the Gulf Coast of Alabama, a fiasco with our moving company, and many hours of driving.

Since we've been here, we've begun to tackle the myriad of outdoor opportunities that the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest has to offer. Most recently, we took a short overnight backpacking trip to Catherine Creek Meadow. The meadow was beautiful, green, and boggy with spring snow melt. WE got wet feet, but Springer loved walking through the cool water.

My personal chef cooked up a delicious backcountry meal of mashed potatoes, morels, vegetables, and corn on the cob, with s'mores (probably one of the last times we'll be able to have s'mores before fire season starts in the region and campfires are outlawed!) for dessert.
