Over Memorial Day weekend, my wife, daughter and I went on an outing to the remote Valley of the Giants.
While this may sound like a dangerous location out of a fairy-tale story, it's actually a protected grove of huge, ancient Douglas-firs
and western hemlocks
— many of which are hundreds of years old and hundreds of feet tall. But actually getting
to this grove is a whole nother story! You can read all the details in my article Outing to the Valley of the Giants.
As an extra bonus, on the way there, as we were passing through the small Oregon village (population about 1,000) of Falls City,
we decided to visit the waterfall
which gave the village its name. During this outing I took 118 pictures, the best 43 of which have made it into this album. All in all, it was a worthwhile trip, and I hope that one day, you too will make your own expedition to the Valley of the Giants.
