How the water falls

Over the weekend I went backpacking with a couple of friends to Silver King Lake in the Bull of the Woods Wilderness, one of the largest old-growth forests left in the state. Turns out, I’m still in love with Oregon, and trekking still leaves my body feeling like it survived a UFC fight with a silverback gorilla.

‘Twas a long three days.

On our way back from the lake we found a peaceful creek-side spot for the night near some waterfalls and a clear blue-green pool at the bottom of a rockslide. I’ll be posting a few more photos from the trip, but first, a few studies of one of the waterfalls.

    you travel accross the continents, you continues travelling when you are back even if it’s just your hometown. i have two questions: what’s the meaning of always being on the way? what’s the difference for you if you stop travelling?

      We are all on the “way” of some kind. For me it means enjoying the moment and saying “Yes, I’m in” a lot. I think it’s because I have an aversion to being stationary for too long. If/when I stop traveling I’ll just have to find more meaningful work, but as long as I can travel, I will travel, even if it’s just a 1-hour drive to the wilderness. What are you up to now Fiona?

        i asked you these questions because i do not have answers myself yet. i love travelling, and i’ve continued to do it in the past 4 years. i couldnt say how much i learned and enjoyed during the time. beyond words. im just confused a bit where it will lead. right now, im up to keep exploring.
