Coming back from a quick hike out to Butte Creek Falls last night, (5 minute drive from Abiqua Falls) we had passed a small campground called Camp Dakota. We slowed to a stop as we were driving past it after seeing a large plume of smoke in the distance. We looked through the trees and saw the campground on fire. It was 9:30 PM, people were starting to settle in for the night, but were interrupted by trees being engulfed. We continued on at a crawl trying to decide if we should turn around before realizing once the fire trucks got there we would just be getting in the way. Seconds later we got passed by the first fire engine. On the ~10 mile windy road we were passed by a total of 8 fire engines, a fire chief, police, an ambulance, and a water tanker. I tried looking around for info about the fire this morning but haven't seen anything. I'll update in a story or post when I find something out. . SO. Anyone looking to go to Abiqua Falls this weekend, or Butte Creek Falls, be aware that the road in might be closed so it would be best to avoid it this weekend. And to EVERYONE, please please please be VERY cautious when you start campfires, use a grill, use gas lanterns, and especially with the 4th of July coming up, fireworks. Be safe and always be mindful of your surroundings ❤ . . . . . #tentree #tentreeambassador #oregon #oregonexplored #oregonnw #youroregon #hikeoregon #oregononly #outinoregon #findyouroregon #traveloregon #thenwadventure #stayandwander #exploremore #exploredco #campvibes #wekeepmoments #seekingtheoutdoors #staypnw #visualshotz #wanderlust #pnwtameless #pnwlocalsonly #theoutdoorpassion #whyihike #hiking #nikon100 #moodygrams #nikon #nikonusa
Summer reading, in what is now Bush’s Pasture Park, is as timeless as summer reading itself! Sally Bush took this photograph of two friends around 1904 when the Salem Public Library was established by the Salem Women’s Club. Several years later funding for a new library building, at State and Winter Streets, was requested from Andrew Carnegie who helped fund the construction of over 2,500 libraries across America from 1883-1929. Lulu Hughes Bush, Sally’s sister-in-law, met with Carnegie and persuaded him to increase funding to $27,500 for Salem’s library, which was completed in 1912. Now located in the Salem Civic Center, the Salem Public Library encourages youth and adults to join its Summer Reading Clubs which includes prize drawings. To honor the legacy of reading encouraged by Lulu Hughes Bush, and so many other community members throughout the years, the Bush House Museum is one of many proud sponsors of the 2018 Summer Reading Club. Whether you prefer printed books, e-books or audio books, as Gilbert Highet famously observed: “These are not books, lumps of liveless paper, but minds alive on the shelves.” With over half a million items in its collection, the Salem Public Library offers your mind a chance to spend time with an endless number of other fascinating minds!

#honestfriday having depression is so debilitating. For the longest time I didn't want to admit I had depression or go see anyone about it. There is so much negativity and bad stigma around the topic of depression but there shouldn't be. It's just like any other disease or sickness, it just affects people differently. Please, if you or someone you know is struggling with mental health problems seek out help. There is no shame in wanting to live a healthy life. #idontmind
"The Rabbit of Cathedral Park" . Special thanks to Chris Fairley @chrisfairleyphotography and his wife for, unbeknownst to me, moving out of the way so I could get this shot. I would rather have talked to them instead of shooting this bunny, but when one photographer sees another photographer shooting I guess it's just instinct that kicks in to move. I really appreciate you guys! We'll meet up again soon Chris. ..... 6-19-18  7:41 pm . 📷 Canon 5d Mark III @canonusa ⛃ Canon 70-200 mm F/2.8 II 💻 LR 🎥 Handheld -------- Manual F/2.8 1/320 second 500 ISO 200 mm ..... #oregonexplored #oregonlife #portland #oregonnw #oregononly #rabbit #katu #upperleftusa #Canonusa #wildrabbit #bestoforegon #pps_feature #pnwexplored #traveloregon #travelportland #jeffmendenhallphotography #pacificnorthwest  #natgeowild #jj_westcoast #pnwdiscovered   #portlandoregon #jj_oregon #outinoregon #pnwwonderland #pnw #oregon #cathedralpark #pdx #bestoforegon #thatpnwlife

Are you all simmering in summer? Today being the first day of summer and for #throwbackthursday , I am putting up with this view from Trillium Lake. : : : : Let's play a game of questions today. What do you like the most - Icecream or Popsicle? Beach or mountains? Hikes or surfing? Dresses or shorts? : : : : : Am waiting for your answers. : : : #summer #summerdays #firstdayofsummer #2018summer #throwback #trilliumlake #trilliumlakeoregon #oregononly #oregonexplored #travel #traveller #travelpost
A great hike with no trailhead, and getting lost in the woods. Super thrilled to have found and witness this beautiful waterfall. Totally worth it!
Anyone have any summer goals? I do. It's definitely a crazy goal for me. I want to run 100 miles before September 1st. Crazy and ambitious? Yes. But determination and effort can go a long way.

"St John's Bridge at Sunset" ..... It's not my favorite shot of sunset at St Johns Bridge. But I was taking it on my parents 52nd wedding anniversary so I was thinking of them during this.

Get on out there. Most trailheads are open. Still some snow at shady, higher elevations, but not much that you can’t crunch through. And once in awhile, the trees open up and you see something like this. •••••••••••••••••••••••••• #bestoforegon #cascadiaexplored #ig_myshot #loves_mountains_ #greatnorthcollective #modernoutdoorsman #goatworthy #everything_imaginable_ #pocket_allnature #usa_naturehippys #nature_brilliance #nature_shooters #optoutside #oregonexplored #oregon #oregonunplugged #exploreoregon #ourpnw #pnwonderland #pocket_mountains #pnwdiscovered #thebestofbend #bendoregon #royalsnappingartists #jj_oregon #oregonnw #oregononly #nature_sultans #mtjefferson #mtjeffersonwilderness

The first two attempts for this hike resulted in turning back due to losing the trail in snow. The snow finally melted the third time around but an unexpected thunderstorm welcomed us on the way down. 📸: @pamela.johnsonn

"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world." -Oscar Wilde
This past weekend got me really excited for this summer. Can't wait to explore and go on adventures with my toddler and husband.

From 1850-1863 Asahel Bush II was founding editor of the Oregon Statesman newspaper and corresponded with early pioneers throughout the Oregon Territory and State of Oregon. On June 17, 1855, G. D. R. Boyd, and his business partner Blakely, wrote Bush to purchase ink to print their Scottsburg newspaper. Scottsburg, located 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean on the Umpqua River, was a Southern Oregon port with connections to the Steamer Loo Choo and other seagoing vessels. The Steamer Loo Choo sailed regularly to San Francisco and sank off the Southern Oregon coast in the late 1850s. G. D. R. Boyd later moved to Ottumwa, Iowa where he published the Democratic Statesman in 1858. To read more of the hundreds of letters to Asahel Bush II now online, visit the Becoming Oregon: Letters to Asahel Bush II, Oregon Statesman Editor, 1850-1863 (link in the description) This website provides a concise description of each letter along with images of the original handwritten letter and the 1930s WPA typed transcription. . . . . #bushpark  #salemoregon  #insalemoregon #salemor  #travelsalem  #downtownsalem #salemisawesome  #traveloregon  #oregon #pnw  #art  #creativity  #makeart #thisisculture  #oregonartist  #salemevents #oregononly  #gosalem365 #northwestcollective  #nwisbest #SalemisMOPO

Happy Saturday and CONGRATS to all the grads.

#honestfriday I always have mixed feelings about summer. I love the adventures, late nights, bbq food, etc.. but I dread the hot weather. Thankfully I don't live in places like Arizona and Hotlanta.
A sunset above the clouds part 1. Every time I’ve watched the sunset at Mary’s Peak it’s different. Has to be one my favorite spots to catch a sunset. #pnwphotographer #naturephotography #landscapephotography #maryspeak #maryspeakoregon #optoutside #mylifeoutdoors #oregononly #pnw #thatview #sunset #sunsethike #jj_oregon #hikeoregon
Look at the way these beautiful bowls catch the light. They remind us of the sunny summer days ahead! You can get these bowls created by Nena Bement, and hundreds of other amazing items in the Gift Gallery at the Bush Barn Art Center. #salemartassociation . . . . #bushpark  #salemoregon  #insalemoregon #salemor  #travelsalem  #downtownsalem #salemisawesome  #traveloregon  #oregon #pnw  #art  #creativity  #makeart #thisisculture  #oregonartist  #salemevents #oregononly  #gosalem365 #northwestcollective  #nwisbest #SalemisMOPO

We decided to wing it last night and see what we could come up. Conditions didn’t look amazing and with all the ambient light around from the town it proved tough but I was happy to come out on top with this! Yes the IG crop sucks for this, it had a stellar reflection on the sand but couldn’t fit it all on the gram. . . . #cascadiaexplored #pnwexplored #pnwcollective #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #pnw_moods @pnw_moods #pnwdiscovered #travel_oregon @pnw_topshots #pnwwilderness #oregonnw #nightphotography #longexpoelite @longexpoelite #oregononly @oregononly #milkywaychasers #milkyway #astrophotography @milkywaychasers #bestoforegon #longexpo_addiction #longexposure_shots
