I just returned from a visit to see family in Scio, Oregon. This has always been a special place for me, not only because I visit close relatives, but the land where they live is so beautiful and peaceful. I have so many fond memories there as a child and now as an adult, the visits and memories are even more precious. It's so different living here in the desert and big city, so to me "hanging" with family in Scio is like Heaven on Earth!

She just wants to be an "outside girl"
