A great start to our Thanksgiving vacation this year! Sun was in the forecast this weekend so we made a quick trip up to Silver Falls State Park. Just an hour away from our house, this used to be a favorite spot for us in the off season, but it had been a couple of years since we’d visited. It was a fun return back!

There is a trail that goes around the campground through rainforest, open meadows and to a bird sanctuary.

We pulled in Friday night next to another couple that just began full timing in their Airstream a few weeks ago. They’re in for a great adventure and it will be fun to follow them. Be sure to check out Curtis and Tammy’s blog, justbreezinalong. Good reads, great photos and really nice people!
Woke up to cold, frosty mornings!
A very cold start to our day!
Seasons are changing….
Just a half mile from the campgrounds…
The Lodge at Silver Falls…had a great lunch here and ran into a bunch of my old students, now in middle school, hiking with their boy scout troop. Fun afternoon!
Had to keep reminding ourselves it was Thanksgiving break and not Christmas….

The sun started to break through as we were leaving….
And sometimes, this……

very well written…..
Happy Thanksgiving Kim, Todd and family!
So, I’m trying to decide if our camping next to each other was serendipitous or fortuitous? Perhaps both? It really was a pleasure sharing a fire and some good conversation. We’ll see you out there!
Rather random question but I was wondering what patio mat you guys have? We just bought our first airstream today and I like the classic ‘astro turf’ look. I love your blog, you take such beautiful pictures!
I believe this is the one we ordered from Camping World: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/prest-o-fit-patio-rug-6-x-15-green/12862
It is hemmed and it folds up nicely. Congratulations on the new Airstream. If you post photos, send me a link 🙂
Thank you for the information. I will definitely let you know if I post any pictures. Hopefully we will take it out next month! It’s all so fun/exiting/scary at the same time;).
