the gorge in Oregon

So went to the coast and camped, then a couple of days later we headed to the gorge and hiked. I was in awe the whole time letting the rest of my group trek on ahead of me so I could go at a slow pace and examine rocks, moss and what I learned to be lichens. I eventually encountered a woman with 2 little boys and we seemed to be at the same pace. We hiked together showing the boys igneous rocks and letting them touch the back of the lichens—kids are smart. DUH. Anyways–here are pics of the waterfalls at the top of the steep hike….

I worry about the environment. I cloud gaze often. I dream of the sea. Doodler. Waitress. Nomad of sorts. River swimmer. I have a small westie named Lulu that I sleep with like a stuffed animal. And maybe one day they will say, "and who was she really anyway?"
