If there’s one thing I truly miss about Oregon now that I’ve moved back to Texas, it’s all the hiking I used to do.

Honestly, I could easily go on a hike any day of the week where I lived in my college town of Eugene. The other great thing was that hiking spots outside of Eugene weren’t ever too far of a drive as well, all within a few hours driving distance.

Readers, I insist that y’all hike at least one of these spots if you’re ever in Oregon–please!

I’ve been wanting to hike Mt. Pisgah for weeks and finally got the chance to go with the other half this past weekend. Luckily for us, the weather has been so gorgeous this past week which made the hike incredibly enjoyable. The great thing I noticed about the trails at Mt. Pisgah is not only are there a good number of them, but lots of the trails meet up with one another so you can wander and not stay on just one trail. We will definitely start to be making more trips out to Mt. Pisgah, it’s just too wonderful not to visit.
