Trillium Lake Photo Shoot

So when Emily said she wanted snow for the photo shoot, I knew that’s where I wanted to go!

If you missed the first post, I’ll link it here so you can check out the full list.

Luckily, we have gotten some really nice weather in the last two weeks, and it has inspired me to start planning to take advantage of the beauty and fun Oregon has. So without further adieu, here is my Oregon summer bucket list!
