Umpqua River, Boomer Hill-Oregon


At the top of Boomer Hill where the Lodge Pole Pines stand straight & erect, reaching for the sky; this is where my heart is.  It’s among the moss and pine cones scattered on the forest floor.

North Umpqua River

It’s riding the air currents, alongside the bald eagles and hawks as they search for prey.

My heart yearns for the splash and laughter of the Umpqua River as it weaves its way across the valley floor.

Oh, how I miss my Beloved Oregon!!

Don’t get me wrong.  I love my life!  I have many, many blessings!  But sometimes my heart just aches to be among this beauty.  I’ve lived from coast to coast in this Great Big U.S. of A. and much of it is beautiful.  But I’ve never lived anywhere more beautiful than Southwest Oregon.

Where is the most beautiful place you’ve ever lived?

    • I agree. NW California is just as beautiful. I was just about 100 miles north of the CA border. Hawaii or Alaska, no. I’ve never been. I’d love to see them though. Thank you for the visit, Chuck. ❤

  5. Stunning, absolutely awe-inspiring! No one you miss it – but it will always live in your mind’s memory bank, your hearts chambers, and if all else isn’t enough, a weekend trip perhaps to great your old friends in the beauty found in nature there. ❤

  6. I miss Oregon, too! My husband used to love to fly fish on the Umpqua and I love the Umpqua drive where there are about five waterfalls down the hill! ❤

    • You know EXACTLY where these pics were taken!! I’ve shown pictures of Tokatee falls to people and they swear that it’s fake, that nothing that beautiful could be real. It is SOOO pretty there. Thank you so much for the visit! 🙂
