October in Oregon

Recently we returned from a week stay in Oregon. This was our second visit, as we visited back in August as well. Both trips were planned as work trips to remodel my grandmother's home in southern Oregon. Despite days full of laboring we were able to capture some of the autumn beauty here and there. Traveling is one of the ways in which we stay inspired throughout the year.
