We’re Here!



We’ve been living in Sandy for a whole week now! And I survived my first week of work. It’s been amazing. My job is wonderful. My new surroundings are breathtaking.

This weekend we decided to try out a couple of hiking spots in our backyard. I checked out 100 hikes in Northwest Oregon. . . from the library and we tried a couple of them. On Saturday we hiked the short trail to the beautiful Little Zig Zag Falls (photo above). The trail-head had an interesting history marker that pointed out the fact that what we were parked on was the old Mt. Hood Highway, which was also (I believe) a part of the Barlow Road, one of the first routes over Mt. Hood.

This place has such a rich, interesting history! I can’t wait to learn it all.
