Having flown above the valley in the morning, Jess took Candace and I out to Cascadia in the afternoon. This is where Candace's mother's family grew up. It was really cool seeing the Short Covered Bridge over the South Fork of the Santiam River, as well as Cascadia Bible Church where Candace's grandpa was pastor. We also visited the final resting place of Candace's great-grandparents in a cemetery at Sweet Home.

 This was once the school but was destroyed by fire several years ago.
 Anyone fancy an airport fire tender?
