Our Story:

I’m an adventurous soul who feels most at home surrounded by trails, trees, and water. Hiking is my peace and meditation, and I am so glad to be sharing this with the whole family. In Spring of 2022, our family took a weekend trip to the Oregon Coast and it was just as I remembered it when I was young. Breathtaking beauty, misty rain, and vast greenery. We visited several locations down the central coast that weekend and I craved more. We passed so many State Parks that looked intriguing, but I knew nothing about them, so I bought a book about the Oregon State Parks for future trip planning. When I was reading the book I realized… I want to see then ALL! So the family decided to embark on the adventure of visiting every State Park in Oregon (and hopefully moving on to Washington after).
