There's something special about being in the woods surrounded by ferns and towering trees that makes me feel like I've come home. The forest floor silences your steps as you step away from life for a moment, and the smell of pine needles and recent rain transports you to a moment of total peace and comfort. This is what forest bathing is all about. Surrounding yourself with nature to relax and restore, if even only for a few days. One of the prettiest places we've found to forest bathe and stay for the weekend in Oregon is this gorgeous cabin in Rhododendron Oregon near Mount Hood.
