Went for a nice little hike at McDowell Creek Falls park outside of Lebanon on an overcast Memorial day. Here's Royal Terrace falls and Majestic Falls. It's just short of a two mile loop to do both sets of falls if you do the full loop, probably a bit over half that if you go the shorter route to the bottom of both falls.

Hi there. I hadn't posted in a while, got kind of busy during the holidays and got away from paying attention to the blog. Time to get started up again.
Here's a few quick photos from the Lewisburg Saddle. It's just north of Corvallis, literally about 5 minutes from Crescent Valley High School. Just head west on Lewisburg road, turn right on Sulphur Springs road then head uphill to the top and you are there. They have three parking areas up there and the place has several hiking trails you can access from the main entrance.
I went there a few times last year, then I started going back up there this winter to hike in the snow. When you see snow on the hills on the north side of Corvallis, this is a great place to access for a snowy walk. Just make sure to wear some shoes with good tread, it can get a bit slick and icy if things melt and re-freeze.
This is a great place to walk to get started back on hiking. There are several logging roads, it's part of Mac Forest (a lot of research is done there), and there are other trails that split off the main logging roads to hike. Right now I'm kinda starting over for the year and I've been doing the new growth and old growth trail loops that cross each other. They are fairly mild hiking trails but I'm still huffing pretty good (although I'm improving every week). Once those are easy I'm going to look for some more challenging trails to do with Pat.

Have you ever been in the military or National Guard or Reserves? You just might qualify for a no money down VA loan....

Looks like Corvallis is getting yet another good taco joint. There are several in town that I really like. This business is one of the better taco places in Eugene and is expanding into Corvallis to the old Dairy Queen location by Winco off of Walnut.
It's nice to see the empty building coming back into use. I'm pretty sure this has been in the works since last year and they've been waiting on permits or other things. It looks to be getting close to opening.
