Misty Mornings, Sunny Days
During winter and spring when the Willamette Valley is foggy in the mornings , Silver Falls is often in the sunshine. These misty mornings make the temperate rainforest feel just that much more like a rainforest!
Standing in front of the historic Volz Family Orchard (next to the B shelter today) – once just off the main street of Silver Falls City – reminds this ranger of past days gone by and made me wonder what would this small logging community have sounded like on such a misty morning. A Spring Break picnic in this orchard may not be all that different than a picnic 100 years ago!
