Wayne, and my Brother and I went to Lava Lands. My brother and I have been there about 11ish years ago, and we have never been to the top of the butte. The volcanic crater is 150 feet deep, and there is trail on the top to walk the whole way around. The views were spectacular!! It is definitely a must to see. Especially when the skies are clear. You can see for miles and miles.
This photo below is the impressive lava field from the single explosion Lava Butte had about 7,700 years ago.
My friend Brittney came over for a 2 night visit. So we showed her around the area. She now wants to be our neighbor.. :P A direct quote is, "My trip to see you has ruined me. lol All I can think about is the calm peaceful forest and how I'd so rather be there than here."
Our property is a work in progress, but when we are done... It is going to be a dream! I am so happy to inspire people. I definitely see the perks in living in a city, but all of those perks have nothing to do with the importance of our time spent enjoying the beauty of this planet.
I took Brittney down to see me in my bridesmaid dress. She made me twirl in it, and got all giddy. It has been in alterations for over a month already and still not complete. Her wedding is at the end of this month. My work will be featured throughout her wedding too. I couldn't be more excited to be a part of her big day, and to share the happy day with all of you.
