A collection of adventure stories written by families like yours.
It's 8 a.m. and my son Lorenzo has just asked if we can go on a hike. My daughter Halona heard "go" and she has already brought me her shoes. With a big smile on my face, we all get dressed, have a small breakfast, pack a little backpack, and head out the door. I would be lying if I said this never happens. My little explorers often want to head outside as soon as they wake up. I don't blame them.
We reached the trailhead at about 6:30 a.m. and payed our $6 recreation fee. (Because of course my expensive State Parks Pass doesn't cover every recreation area.) We threw the baby in the pack and hit the trail with the intent of summiting. The trail was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! If you haven't been to the area, you really must spend some time exploring the scenery.
We are a family on the go. The daily hustle and bustle often finds us wanting connection, and the best way we do that is by getting out to enjoy the beauty of southern Oregon. Always a go-to for us, waterfall hunting in our local area is one of our favorite things to do.
