Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
The Umpqua River is such a beautiful river. Oregon has many beautiful rivers, but this river is my favorite.
First of all, I like it because it is so beautiful! God made this river and it's gorgeous!
And it gives you a feel that you are in another country.
The Umpqua has many different looks to it.
There are parts that look so serene and almost pond like.
And there are also roaring rapids.
They are truly breathtaking!
There's lots of wildlife here too. Here's a beautiful doe with her fawn.
Here's a big intimidating bull!
We saw lots of bald eagles! They are so majestic! I get so excited every time we see them!
We also found frogs!!! My favorite!!!
The banks of the river are so peaceful.
There are so many interesting rock formations.
There are many boulders along the banks.
These are perfect perches for jumping into the river!
We realized that these big huge boulders were once a part of the tops of the mountains and somehow through seismic events they broke off and came crashing down into the river! Wouldn't that be something to witness! I bet the splashes would be amazing and really loud!!!
There are also beautiful flowers along the banks as well.
Pretty fresh daisies.
And these pretty golden wild flowers.
These look like some kind of cotton plant.
Here's a pretty purple flower with a lady bug in the center!
I love these white flowers!
Isn't this spiky green pod gorgeous!
These are pretty purple towering flowers.
Here's a pretty wild rose.
I love this river!
It really reflects God's creativity!
It's absolutely breathtaking!
It's my favorite!
Thank you God for making our world so beautiful!
