We just had a great week long family vacation in the NE corner of Oregon, just to the north of the Eagle Cap Wilderness area. An area Courtney and I have backpacked BC (Before Calla). But now we were able to introduce Calla to the area, needless to say she loved it! We went on several hikes, saw Kokanee salmon spawning, played in the lake, threw pine cones into the stream and watched them float away, saw a lot of deer, saw eagles, ate some ice cream, visitied the local brewery (Terminal Gravity), spent a couple of days with our friends from Idaho Steven and Kathy with their two sons (Carson and Tate). What a busy week and lots of fun for an adventerous toddler.

Fishy! Koknee salmon running up the river to spawn! Pretty amazing sight!

The amazing Eagle Cap Wilderness, one of our favorite places in Oregon.

Wine Tasting at Lumos Winery

Scott, Calla, Joy, Jay and I headed to Lumos Winery for tasting this afternoon. It was cloudy and windy, but the sun came out at the end and it was a beautiful Fall afternoon. Calla loved the flowers and exploring the tasting room. She is such a little adventurer, she keeps us on our toes. We LOVE IT!!!

Calla was meeting and greeting everyone at the door.
Calla and I explored the grape vines, we both agreed it looked like a good year!!

A quick family photo before heading out.
