The campfire is the best part of camping. And along with that comes marshmallows morning, noon and night.

Watching the fishes at the fish hatchery is a great pastime when you're near the Metolius.

Portland Zoo

We headed out early to the Portland Zoo just after 8 AM and just after the rain stopped. It was a serene morning walking through the zoo and gazing at all the animals. Elijah was in a great place!
