    Had a wonderful time at the lavender festival with all the gals there and fun exploring zigzag falls with the ladies from my carpool. Nancy thank you so much for lending your camera and for your advice of shooting in the shade :).

    I presume people coming from Aloha are meeting us at the Lavender Farm. I only have one person confirmed riding with me. We will leave at 8:05 from the Troutdale Parking Lot (look for us in the south west corner of the parking lot.) I will be driving a white Dodge Caravan and will stand outside my van and leave the back open so I am very obvious. Remember I want to be back to the parking lot by 1 pm. So we should have 2 hours at the Farm but it fairly small so we probably won't need that much time.

    July 14

    • Nik

      Hope to catch a ride as well. We'll see you at Troutdale mall bright at early at 8:00am.

      July 18

    • Nancy M

      Looking forward to this. Meeting at the Troutdale mall by 8:00 am to carpool.

      July 18

  • Patricia D.

    I'm leaving the Aloha/Farmington area at 7:20 tomorrow morning and want to meet up with Rae Lynn in Troutdale. I have room for two if anyone wants to carpool with me.

    Hi Rae,
    I've changed my RSVP sorry I'm unable to join you all on Sat. Thanks for organizing the event and I hope you all have a fun time!

    July 18

  • Marie K.

    I live in NE Portland; will not be coming to Troutdale for carpooling. Glad to share a ride with someone living nearby (near Kennedy School / near NE Holman at Ainsworth)

    March 29

    • Namascar S.

      Marie, I live very close to you -- two blocks south of the Kennedy School (right across from New Seasons). I think Vicki Moser is planning to ride with me. Would you mind riding in the back seat where I have a floor platform for shooting through the moonroof?

      July 11

    • Marie K.

      Hi at last, Namascar: I've changed my rsvp to not coming.....up to my eyeballs in family stuff; thought I'd be able to attend, but could not work it out. I mega-apologise for laggardly response to your kind offer!!! Hopefully, another time. Enjoy the trip.

      July 16

  • melody m.

    I have room if someone wants to ride

    July 15

  • Karen m.

    Hi Rae Lynn, I'd like to ride with you if there's still room. I'll meet you at the factory stores at 8 am.

    July 14

    • Rae Lynn N.

      Karen I sent you an email, but yes you can ride wit me.

    I'm picking up Susan @ 7:15 at the Aloha Starbucks on Farmington, the one inside Thriftway. I've got room for two more.

      Oh hey, I also just wanted to double check on when you thought we would be getting back. I just need to be back by 5-5:30. The posted time is until noon so I figure that won't be an issue but thought I should double check : ).

      July 14

  • Cindy C.

    Sorry I will not be attending after all. We have family in town and will be going to the Highland Games Saturday. (Maybe I can get my photo on there :) ). Have fun ladies!

    July 14

  • Sanjana K.

    Anyone going from Beaverton Area. If not, I will join the group at Troutdale.

  • Diane C.

    FYI When I was up there on Saturday I loved going into the nearby orchards and taking pictures of the cherries. It was amazing to see how vibrant red they were I got some good shots if those. The whole area is beautiful and the views of Mt Hood were amazing!

    I see there is a lavender festival this weekend - but want to know where the BIGGEST fields are....i just went to the Hood River one a couple weeks ago. Are there any that are just HUGE - like the tulip festival was? I don't care if I go to a festival, but would love to find someplace with just acres and acres of lavender to photograph?

    July 13

    • Terri A.

      Unfortunately, I don't :( I thought maybe if you took a look at each site and looked at the map part you could narrow it down to somewhere closer to where you live. I have yet to get to any of the lavender fields :(

      July 13

    • Terri A.

      Having said that, it appears as though the ones up North in Washington State have big ones but not sure which ones they are....

      1 · July 13

  • Rae Lynn N.

    By the way, there are lots of other things to take pictures of up in this area.

    2 · July 13

  • Rae Lynn N.

    I will be at the Troutdale Factory storesat 8am and can take four others, but I will leave the Hood River area at 12:00 noon so if you want a ride with me, let me know and please agree to my time constraints.
    I have already been contacted by one person.

      If no one is carpooling from closer to my area (Beaverton) I would love to join your carpool group

      I am catching a ride with Patricia from Aloha, so nix that : )

      July 13

  • Diane C.

    In that I have "Grandma duty" next weekend I will have to change my RSVP to no. So that I would not miss out I drove up there very very early this morning. The place is quite small but really beautiful. The sun was brutal at 7:00 in the morning so I didn't get many shots. I hope you all have more luck next weekend. Drove home by way of Trillum Lake, since I missed that meet up......that was breath taking! Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

    July 12

    • Rae Lynn N.

      Sorry to miss you, but please be sure to post some pictures!

      July 13

  • Brenda H

    Just changed my RSVP to 'no'. Will look forward to seeing your photos!

    I'm not going to go, as I believe the weather will be way too hot for me. Sorry photo lovers! Not this time either. :(

    July 12

  • Diane C.

    Rae Lynn is right about the parking, quite limited.

    Hi, I would love to carpool if anyone is coming from Wilsonville/Tigard/Tualatin or the Lake Owego area.

    Will anyone be driving from the Beaverton area? I would love to carpool if so.....

    July 11

  • Cora C.

    Sorry that I'll be missing this but I'm traveling (again) I'll be back in August. Looking forward to see you then.

    July 11

  • Terri A.

    Looks like I will have to bow out...work gets in the way again :/ Have fun ladies, looking forward to seeing your amazing photos!

    July 10

  • Rae Lynn N.

    Looks like we have a lot of people going. There is limited parking at the farm so please plan to carpool or I think you might be disappointed if you don't get in. Please be sure to change your rsvp to no if you decide you are not going to go. Thanks in advance!

    I took a trip out there a couple weeks ago and took bazillion photos so I'm going to opt out of this trip. Have a great time.

    July 9

  • Rebecca E.

    As far as I know the date has Not been changed. The information I posted is for the Lavendar Festival this weekend. Some of the farms are only open to the public for the festival. If there is any change in the meet up that comes from the organizer.

    July 9

    • Rae Lynn N.

      Thanks for giving us this information, Rebecca. I have now posted some changes to the meetup. Please email me if you have any questions.

      1 · July 9

  • Nik

    I believe that the protocol for when a change in meetup date - location is that the coordinator, Rae Lynn in this case, for the event would update the information in the actual meetup posting and would send out an email to all for us to update our RSVP if the new date-location would not work for us. Not sure if this has happen yet. The attached link above in the meetup is of visiting Lavender Valley and not necessarily of the lavendar valley festival. Wondering if the post about the festival by Rebecca is just letting us know that the festival is happening this weekend and gave us info if we do. Clearification by both would be appreciated.

    July 9

  • Nina W.

    Also needing clarification as to date.

    July 9

  • Diane C.

    I am confused, is the meet-up this weekend or on the 19th? If I could get clarification as soon as possible I would appreciate it. If it is this weekend it may affect my RSVP. thanks so much! Diane

    July 9

  • Jody E.

    Me too. Thought it was on the 19th. I'm at a wedding this weekend

    July 9

  • Terry P.

    I could make it on the 19th, but not this weekend. :( Sorry, I had to withdraw my RSVP.

    July 9

  • Jody E.

    I thought it was the 19th. Did it change?

    July 9

  • Rebecca E.

    Ladies, the lavendar festival is This weekend. If you want info on the farms participating try this link.

  • Kathryn M.

    I will be out of town. Have fun for me!

    July 8

  • Terry P.

    I will be joining but what time will we be meeting at Lavender Valley itself? I think it's easier for me to go straight there until I get used to the area. I'm new here and am so excited to go shooting with others.

    July 5

  • Cheryl

    Is the carpool for everyone? Willing to contribute to gas.
    Thanks!

    June 26

  • Frankie B.

    Darn. I can't go because my niece will be visiting with you two young ones.

    June 22

  • Wendy

    I was looking forward to going, but turns out I'm going to have to work that day. Have fun all!
