Around Oregon: Wildlife Safari

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 10/08/2014 - 10:51

A few weeks ago Jordan and I visited the Wildlife Safari Park about two hours down the highway from us. We had bought a Groupon a while ago and the time had come for us to use it! I wasn't sure what to expect from a safari in the middle of Oregon nowhere, but it was a pretty cool experience. We got up early so we could arrive promptly when the animals were hopefully still awake (before afternoon nap time). They were and we had a great time driving among exotic animals not usually seen in our parts. If you live around or near Southern Oregon, I'd suggest a trip!

▲ Oregon looks weirdly like how I imagine Africa to look.

▲ Giraffes help to add to the confusion.

▲ Hippo. Don't know what else to say about him...

▲ I have to admit that we had been considering a trip to Kenya, to visit Jordan's sister, but now I feel like I've already been!

New Bundle: Autumn Art

With the start of the blog train last week, I added a continuation bundle. While the deep colors in the palette for the blog train aren't my usual cup of tea, the title captured my imagination and I knew I had to take it a bit further.

In weekend news, I've developed a serious nesting bug and have been cleaning and I guess you'd say arranging things around the house. I even convinced Jordan to go up to Portland so we could go to Ikea. We bought a lot of house plants and all the frames in the store so we could start a gallery wall. Now we're just impatiently awaiting the prints to go in the frames. Also, back in Corvallis, I bought all the pumpkins at Trader Joe's. Things are getting festive at the Pixel Scrapper compound.
