about



I Heart Pacific Northwest is designed and written by Lisa Holmes, a graphic designer living in Portland, Oregon. When I’m not designing websites or print materials at my company, Yulan Studio, I like to spend time hiking and exploring the surrounding areas.

This site is a chronological history of every hike I’ve done since moving to Oregon from the Midwest in 2007.

Silver Star Mountain

Silver Star Mountain is a wildflower haven in early summer. With five access points and extensive trails in the area, this hike started from the north on the Silver Star Trail #180.
