About an hour northeast of Albany, on the eastern edge of the Willamette Valley, lie the unique sister communities of Silverton and Mt. Angel, separated only by a four-and-a-half-mile stretch of Oregon Route 214.

Silverton, gateway to Silver Falls State Park, is the home of the 80-acre Oregon Garden botanical park. Nearby is Canyonview Camp and Equestrian Center, where all of my three kids have attended various camps over the years.

Mt. Angel home to the Mount Angel Abbey, founded in 1882 by a small group of Benedictine monks newly arrived from their monestery-abbey in Engelberg (German for Mt. Angel), Switzerland. Mt. Angel hosts one of the largest annual Oktoberfests in the U.S., and is also home to the largest glockenspiel in the nation.
The photos in this album were taken with the Sony Alpha α77 and Olympus OM-D E-M5 cameras.
