To match the grand Smith Rock landscape, one would think that I would be listening to the work of classical American composers. Something like Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man or Seger’s Like a Rock. But the point of the blog isn’t to make a Smith Rock experience. It is to document an adventure. To be true to the events that transpired, I suggest you click play on the widget below. It was the theme song for this adventure.
What is Smith Rock? Is it just a rock?
Yes. Yes it is.
It is a very beautiful rock. A red-toned piece of the earth that shoots out of the surrounding plains. At its base a river gently curves, avoiding the mass.
Hiking to the top of Smith Rock isn’t easy, but it is worth the effort.
Besides, everyone knows that hiking down is the worst part.
Once you make it back down safely you get to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the river.
Which is basically the only thing I photographed for the rest of the trip…
^Look at that reflection! Hot Dang that is pretty!
Hopefully I’ll find time soon to post whatever travel photos I have left. Maybe I’ll even get to see the rest of the Seven Wonders of Oregon!
So far, the Seven Wonders have proven not to disappoint.
Lets just hope I survive the term so I can live to tell the tales of my journeys.
