Take The Long Way Home

More Oregon Photos...


I have so many memories as a child visiting my aunt, uncle & cousins here at their property in Scio, Oregon,  one of which is the sound of the train that runs occasionally near by.  Even now, as an adult coming back with my husband, I continue to make more beautiful memories here, and that is "special" to me.   I love this place!







I wish I had the words to describe the feeling I had while riding my cousins bicycles with my husband down the dirt driveway and onto the two-lane road along the rail road tracks and under the covered bridge.  It was like any stress I thought I had disappeared with the sunset and the freshness of the country air. 







I'm not very good with words and writing, so I hope my photos helped to share fond memories of my recent visit to Oregon.  

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday. 
Becca
