In a few days I will be jetting off to Seattle for my next big adventure, but before I did, I wanted a chance to try out my new camera (an early graduation present from my amazing grandparents). I thought the best way to do this would be to go to one of my favorite places in Oregon: Lake of the Woods. Lake of the Woods is perhaps one of the most beautiful locations in Oregon and there is always a sense of calm, community, and peace upon arrival. It was such an amazing experience and now I am happy to share some of the pictures I took there (as well as pictures from my own backyard and Fish Lake). I am super excited to try my new camera out in Seattle, as well as overseas in the coming months!
