Hill Family: Seize the Adventure

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.

Pierce Family: Chasing Waterfalls

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.

Story by Rachel Sanchez

Sanchez Family: Hiking Stairs Gulch

I take the tiny hand of my 13-month old daughter, Mila, who refuses to ride in her carrier, and begin up the trail. My toddler, Lilli, and husband trail behind as Lilli picks up every interesting rock, plant, and insect that she finds. I love these days where we have nowhere to be and we can indulge in every bit of curiosity that the girls express.
