a couple days in Oregon

I just spent a couple days up in Oregon.  I wouldn't call it spontaneous, but it wasn't planned very far in advance.  Living up here in Shasta county now, I'm a mere 3 hours and 15 minutes away from my grandparents, and had been wanting to go up for a visit, and then found out my aunt would be up there too this week, so off I went!  I'm really really glad I went up there, it was wonderful to spend some time with everyone.

They have a beautiful place that sits right along the Rogue River, and one of my favorite things to do when I'm there is sit out on a stump right at the water's edge and watch the river flow past.  It's completely mesmerizing to me, so endless!  Kind of boggles my mind that it just keeps going.

I'm always hoping to see the resident Bald Eagle while I'm there, but so far I never have.  I always take my big camera though just in case, and I did see an Osprey and a lot of Canada Geese.

I'm back in Oak Run now, and it's stupid hot.  My cat Olin was SOOOO happy to see me when I got back.  He's still driving me crazy being so loud at night, please oh please let this just be a phase!
