Saw the Blue River photo. My family and I camp up there each year for 3-4 days. I travel over to Central Or more often than I like to think. Love some of the Mckenzie trail and the Mt Jefferson and Hoodoo areas for backpacking. I take it that the Mckenzie area is also a favorite of yours also. Hopefully you and yours have the time to soak up more of the natural vibes in that area!!

Thank you for the support on my blog. Thank you for the reminder- I don't think people are ever as kind to yourself as you are to others-and I am definetly one of those people! Love to encourage others, but so not good at encouraging myself.
You hang in there too-acceptance is hard, but as long as we keep pushing, I am sure we'll get there.
