"A few minutes off Highway 14, at the end of a steep hike to the Little White Salmon river, you’ll discover Spirit Falls. You’ll likely find it one of the Northwest’s most serene spots to listen to the water rush by.

"I am so fortunate to live only 12 miles away from scenic Smith Rock, an Oregon State Park located here in Central Oregon. During the summer, my son (Moriel Arango, CTO of Bladerunner Energy seen in the photo above) and I head out for early morning runs which energizes us both to take on the rest of the day in our respective cleantech energy startups."

"Urban Farmer is my favorite place for a casual beverage, business lunch, or quiet spot for mindful practices.

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere and impeccable service, I am continuously surprised that this hidden gem has remained relatively undiscovered."
