We celebrated Jasper's 2nd birthday (April 2) by driving up to the coast of Oregon for a 3 day rustic cabin trip. On the way, we hiked a very scenic trail in Jed Smith State Park (California) called the Boy Scout Trail. The trail led through massive redwood trees to a stunning waterfall. By late afternoon, we were moving in to a cozy cabin in Cape Blanco State Park, Oregon. Sun crystals shimmered across the ocean toward the late day sun. That evening, the sun set magnificently past a stately lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula. The following day, we explored all around Cape Blanco and also nearby Port Orford Headlands State Park. After a celebration of a frosting-packed cake (which Jasper loved!), we hiked several beautiful trails at Port Orford. As the sun dropped toward the western sky, we watched whales off the rugged coast. It was a fun 3-day celebration of our little boy, now two years old!
