Oregon Part 4 - Carousel


We had to sneak in a carousel ride right?! 

I remember when the City of Salem was in the process of building, hand carving and hand painting the carousel. I was a kid and I remember it being years and years (like 10??) before it came together. I think as a kid I took it for granted, but now with my adult and more appreciative eyes, all I see is the work and beauty that went into it. It sure is pretty and I am glad that Maisie always requests "one more ride". I know she's too young to appreciate it fully, but she must know it's pretty special.
