Mama Boots and I continued our road trip north from Eureka, headed to see more redwoods. It was time to see my twelfth national park!
The drive from Crater Lake home to Seattle would have been a long one. Too long. So I elected we make a short but sweet stop at Silver Falls State Park near Salem to break up the drive home. It’s considered the crown jewel of Oregon State Parks–and I’d soon learn why.
Ahh, waking up the morning that Daylight Savings kicks in. The panic when you look at the time and realize you have one hour till checkout and need to shower and pack before departing for the trailhead. Maybe we didn’t pick the best weekend for hiking after all?
