weekends, glorious weekends
I took the day off on Friday; my carpets were scheduled for cleaning so I had to keep the pup out of the house. We headed to Detroit Lake, 50 miles east of Salem on Hwy 22. The drive was absolutely gorgeous; I could not get enough of the colors. We stopped at N. Santiam State Park (where the above photo was taken), Detroit Lake State Park (which seemed to be under construction), and at a campground on the Santiam River just past Detroit. On the way back, I discovered a great little coffee shop in Mill City called Rosie’s Mountain Coffee House. If you’re ever driving by, do stop in.
On Saturday, I took Atlas to a doggy Halloween party at PetUtopia in the afternoon and then to a TTouch class in the evening. On Sunday, I had a shift at the shelter and then met Robin – who, by the way, is as lovely as you would expect based on her images and stories – for a photo walk along the river.
All in all, a lovely long weekend. I hope you enjoyed your weekend as well!
