Spring in Oregon

May 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Life is pretty hectic at the moment, but we have been finding some time to take quick trips around the Willamette Valley and the Central Oregon coast to take in what is the glory of spring in Oregon. 

First stop is a red barn in the evening near Albany...

Next is Sahalie Falls on the McKenzie River, Willamette National Forest

We found some relatively rare Calypso Orchids (Calypso bulbosa) on the forest floor at Peavy Arboretum in Corvallis.

Other wildflowers also found at Peavy Arboretum - Oregon Iris (Iris tenax) and Oregon Fawn Lily (Erythronium oregonum)

These next flowers aren't wild, but the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival near Woodburn did not disappoint...

Along the Oregon Coast in Spring, it's all rainbows and sunsets.  First, this shot from a Friday evening right after a long day of meetings at Hatfield Marine Science Center and right before some needed down time at the Rouge Brewery in Newport.

Beach near Cape Perpetua...

And last but not least, sunset in Yachats...
