One of my favorite times in Oregon is the Fall. The rich earth-tone colors fill the trees and fields, making it almost like a painting.
 
I also neglected to mention that Fall is my favorite of the seasons because of apple cider donuts, Bauman Farms apple cider donuts, to be specific.

The right side of the tracks

Canby

The first words screamed, shouted or even whined by most kids when they arrive at The Flower Farmer’s farm in North Canby is “Can we go on the train?!”
 
The farm, located about a mile outside of Canby, has been an attraction for more than 20 years with locals going to the farm almost as frequently as people from out of town.
