Trip Reports

Trip Reports

The places I've been. The pictures I've taken.
The scars I've earned along the way.

"There are no unsacred places; there are only
sacred places and desecrated places."

White Trilliums

This is a collection of photos taken of four different white trilliums.  These are great flowers.  Lots of textures, lots of nice things going on, visually.

Sandstone Falls

This is the conglomeration of a few different trips.  I kind of stumbled upon this place, not knowing what to expect.  What I found was one of the most unique sites around.

North Umpqua #1

Here is a post I’ve been procrastinating on for…oh, about a year.  These were all taken over the 40 minutes I had leftover from one of the Castle Creek trips last year.
