Dox at Smith Rock

Doxology took a field trip to Smith Rock last weekend. We were treated with an assortment of weather, a sampler if you will. The diversity of weather was to the point that you could both get a sunburn and struck by lightning.
We enjoyed the beautiful scenery... some climbing in...
...played with wildlife...
...and enjoyed our time together by the fire. (Check out the shade/rain structure in the back of this picture...the ladies made that).
There are more pictures on the DOXoutdoors blog.

Happy Mother's Day

We went camping with Crystal's family for Mother's Day. We stayed at House Rock, just 20 miles East of Sweet Home. We had a beautiful spot by the river, it's still early in the season so it was very quiet.
Crystal's family (mom, dad, nieces).
We found a cool log to play on.
We hiked some trails, one that led to a waterfall. We climbed around on the rocks by the falls, but Joei had a hard time with the boulders so Scotty stayed with her on this ledge.
Resting in the shade.
Awwww, we so cute.
Hanging out back at camp.
Ooooh, coals.

climbing season is open

This was our first time out to Smith this year. The weather was perfect and the rock not too crowded.
Joei knows what to do.
