This is the quiet upper portion of the road that I grew up on. The narrow street only gets traffic from hikers that are heading up to the multiple trailheads that dot the roadside. The leaves quietly drifted down as I sat there and listened to the silence.


  1. quiet is good for the mind.

  7. How I would have loved to have grown up somewhere so quiet and beautiful. A great letter Q - thank you.

  8. Loved reading that the hikers use this road being that my husband has done the Appalachian Trail and the Long Trail. He is now getting ready to start the Pacific Crest Trail.....do not think he will ever finish that one. Oregon is so beautiful. Such a lovely photo.genie

  9. How beautiful...I did Quiet today, too, but from a different perspective.
