Hanging Out on the Oregon Trail

Good morning! Welcome to the Homemaking Party! The kids and I have had a few adventures here in Oregon this past week. Last Wednesday I took the six oldest and visited Heppner, the town I was born in. We had fun checking out places that are special to me. On the way home, we followed a sign to discover some Oregon Trail wagon ruts!

It was a gorgeous day for a long walk---slightly warm and breezy. {This picture is funny because, of all my boys, Elisha's the least "cowboy". Ha!}


The prairie grasses were taller than Avalon!

There were a couple signs set up to talk about the Oregon Trail in this area.

We're on the trail! Do you see the wagon ruts? 

It's funny how the way back seemed so much hotter than the way there. Ha! Water! I need water!

It was a special day. I'm glad we stopped!

Thanks for linking up with the Homemaking Party! I'm excited to see what you've got to share!

  4. Love these pictures! Our family took in part of the Oregon Trail as part of our cross country trip six summers ago. Amazing and it made history so tangible! Great memories!

    1. It really was super quiet! All we could hear were birds, crickets, and the wind!
