I just love exploring waterfalls and rain forests in Oregon. We happened upon Watson Waterfalls while driving from Crater Lake, Oregon, to Bandon, Oregon, this July. The path through the forest up to the main falls is so green and moist. The creek wanders around moss-covered rocks and decaying trees. The smells and sounds as you hike through the dense canopy fill you with a calm peace that makes you are on a tropical island somewhere far away. This was one of my favorite moments of 2010, and I will return to this spot. I hope you can make it there too. Take your time to notice every snail, mushroom and dew drop.
