I started this gallery for personal reasons but as it turns out, it was much needed in the community and for the artists and that has been a humbling realization.” Weston, who volunteered then worked for Salem’s Hallie Ford Museum of Art

re­gon contains multitudes, for this is a state that spans a tremendous range of people, cultures, and terrains.

Willamette Valley Life • Fall 2020

Fall Color In The Mid-Willamette Valley n Oregon’s Mid-Willamette Valley, every season puts on a show, and fall is no exception. Take a walk through a park, hike behind waterfalls or sip a glass of wine while taking in fall’s brilliant colors near Salem, Oregon. Discover a local park One of the best places to find fall color near Salem is in one of the area’s dozens of parks. Riverfront Park is a great starting point as you traverse the river over two pedestrian bridges to cross into the connecting parks, MintoBrown Island Park and Wallace Marine Park. On the banks of the Willamette River, you’ll spot abundant wildlife, including shore birds, deer and fish breaching the water’s surface to grab a bite to eat in the early mornings, while also enjoying the vibrant red, orange and yellow hues that adorn the trees on shore. Right outside of downtown Salem, you can take a walk through the past while exploring two historic parks. The park surrounding Deepwood Museum & Gardens bursts with color each fall. Take a tour of the 125-yearold home or stroll through the fiveacre public park with formal gardens, nature trails and a greenhouse. Down the street, trees with blazing shades of red and orange frame the historic Bush House Museum, with 90 acres of adjoining park to wander. A handful of lesser-known parks in West Salem provide excellent opportunities for relishing fall’s splendor. Daniel Chandler Nature Park is described as a “thing of beauty,” full of deciduous trees with a grand display of changing leaves and plant identification markers along the way. A walk through the forest beside Glen Creek in Orchard Heights Park is serene and beautiful in the fall, but the trail’s real treasure lingers just beyond the woods. On the back side of the park, a beautiful, large white oak stands alone on the hillside, where barred owls are known to hunt and raise their young nearby. Around the corner from Orchard



Heights Park, Straub Nature Park is one of Salem’s hidden gems. A wide variety of trees call the park home, which is perfect for a quick nature walk. The wooded area is ideal for those unexpectedly hot fall days, as the trees cast ample shade. Located less than a mile from Straub Nature Park, Brush College Park provides more than eight acres of exploration among oak trees and wetland areas. A wooden bridge near the parking lot takes you over Gibson Creek and leads you along a forested trail that is sure to stun with fall color. Sprague Skyline Park, in South Salem, puts you in close proximity to the Skyline Trail and Croisan Creek Trail. The distance you hike, bike or run will vary depending on the trail you select, with each trail donning a variety of trees, including Douglas fir, big leaf maples and cottonwoods. Elk, beaver and rabbits have also been known to travel these trails. Oregon ash, vine maple and Garry oak are among the trees that will grab your attention each autumn at Aumsville Ponds. The county park, near Aumsville, Oregon, is a natural heritage park site, where work is being done to restore some of the landscapes that greeted the area’s pioneers and sustained the Native American tribes. Enjoy fall’s splendor by foot, bicycle

or horseback at Willamette Mission State Park in Gervais, Oregon. On the shores of Mission Lake, located within the park, you’ll spot the nation’s largest black cottonwood, standing at more than 155 feet tall. Paddlers can access the park by water, starting at Wallace Marine Park or Spong’s Landing Park while taking in the spectacular fall colors that embellish the river along the way. Another park to add to your list is Champoeg State Heritage Area in St. Paul, Oregon, where the state’s first provisional government was formed in 1843. The park is situated on the banks of the Willamette River, with acres of forests, fields and wetlands. Take a self-guided walk through the park to appreciate the park’s red and yellow leaf maple trees or join in on the Autumn Leaves 50/50 Ultra Run at the end of October. Nestled against Rickreall Creek, in Dallas, Oregon, Delbert Hunter Arboretum and Botanic Garden serves as a living museum of native plants. It showcases many species of plants and trees, including high-desert plants, rare shrubs and flowers. With several walking paths and benches throughout, the arboretum is a perfect place to connect with nature this season. -Travel Salem, www.travelsalem.com Fall 2020 • Willamette Valley Life

Sam Parra: Connecting the past and future in the perfect glass of Tempranillo BY ERIN GRACE


he Willamette Valley is known world-wide for its pinot noir - and for good reason. But in a sea of pinot, one man wants to take wine back to basics. You could say wine is in Sam Parra’s blood. A second-generation MexicanAmerican on his father’s side and first-generation on his mother’s, Parra’s family includes three generations in the wine industry. Parra himself started in the industry at age 20 and got a major breakthrough during the first of many trips to Europe. Staying with a vintner friend in Rasteau, Parra was introduced to top producers in areas like Province, Bordeaux, and Languedoc. He didn’t waste the opportunity. “They found it cute that a young guy was asking really detailed, technical winemaking questions,” Parra said. During the same trip, he fell in love with tempranillo in northern Spain, a love that formed the foundation of his future business. He came back from each trip determined to make great wine. He started to save in 2017. “I am independently owned,” Parra says proudly. “I didn’t take money from investors or family.” As a small company, Parra takes a unique approach: focusing on single-vineyard, high-heat grapes. It makes sense. Although pinot noir is the current staple in the Valley, heatloving grapes like tempranillo, cabernet franc and syrah will come into their own as the climate changes. And why go single-vineyard? “Starting out so small, I don’t have the option to pick out many barrels,” Parra says. “I’m going to focus on a single vineyard. [It’s a] true expression of vineyard and terroir, a true expression of vintage.” Of course, this approach is far from easy. Parra’s first wine is a 2019 tempranillo, made from grapes grown at Zenith Vineyards in Salem. Tempranillo wants heat to develop the big, jammy flavors it’s famous for, but 2019 saw buckets of autumn rain. The wet weather meant less heat and a higher

likelihood of rot. Undeterred, Parra arranged for an earlier harvest to avoid damage to the grapes. Instead of big and jammy, the flavor Parra got was delicate and refined. He rolled with it. “I had the option to use twice- and [three times-] filled barrels because I want a little oak, but not to overwhelm the wine.” The

Being small calls for creativity in sales, too. You can’t find Parra’s wines in stores. Instead, Parra sells through a mailing list on his website, parrawineco.com. resulting wine is softer than a traditional tempranillo, elegant, with a fresh acidity that tingles on the palate. “If I’m going to describe it as a song,” Parra says, “I’d pick ‘Smooth Operator’ by Sade.” Being small calls for creativity in sales, too. You can’t find Parra’s wines in stores. Instead, Parra sells through a mailing list on his website, parrawineco. com. Anyone interested in Parra’s wine signs up to the list and gets in line to receive an allotment. (Parra’s allotments

are of two, six, or 12 bottles.) You don’t pay up-front; instead, you agree to purchase your allotment when it’s ready. However, there’s a limited quantity to go around, so it pays to get on the list - and therefore in line - early. The 2020 allotments are nearly sold out, but you can still get your place in line for Parra’s next release in 2021: a carbonic tempranillo and rose of tempranillo. Another great way to get your hands on Parra’s wines is an auction lot. Parra is Co-Chair of AHIVOY, a group of Latinx winemakers dedicated to providing education and professional development to vineyard workers. As part of their fundraising efforts, Parra has combined his wines with a unique dining experience. “It’s a four-course lunch or dinner at Pura Vida Cocina in McMinnville. … It will be for six people and includes a six-pack of Parra Wines and Xicha Brewery Beers, as well as swag.” Sounds cool! Even cooler? Sam will be there for the fourth course - a decadent chocolate dessert paired with his tempranillo - to talk about the wine with the guests. Check out ahivoy.com to put in your bid.

Ghouls Just Want To Have Fun Valley haunted places to visit this fall.


all might look a bit different this year, but that’s no reason to let the season pass you by. Get your ghost stories locally-sourced with these six “haunted places,” perfect for ghost enthusiasts, thrill seekers, and anyone who loves the spooky mysteries of Halloween.

The most well-known haunted place in the region, the Heceta Head Lighthouse was built in 1894. The former assistant lightkeeper’s house (now a bed and breakfast) and the lighthouse itself are said to be haunted by Rue, a friendly ghost in search of her child. Sit by the fire on a stormy night on the coast and read all previous guests’ accounts of Rue’s presence. Then snuggle up in Victoria’s Room – the room with the most paranormal activity, as reported by visitors. Sleep tight! Bijou Art Cinema -Eugene

If the works of cinematic art don’t give you the chills here, the ghosts in the walls sure will. The Bijou Art Cinema plays award-winning foreign and independent films in a converted mission-style church which once was a mortuary. When the lights go down and the films begin, patrons have reported feeling a strange presence. The ghosts here seem to be friendly and interested more in enjoying the entertainment than frightening guests.   Eugene Masonic Cemetery -Eugene

Some of Eugene’s well-known names such as Eugene Skinner were laid to rest in this cemetery on the National Register of Historic Places. Locals visiting the cemetery to pay their respects have reported visions that appear and quickly disappear. The most haunted location on the grounds is the Hope Abbey Mausoleum. 12

Willamette Valley Life • Fall 2020


Heceta Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast -Florence

Eugene Pioneer Cemetery

Eugene Pioneer Cemetery -Eugene

More than 4,000 are buried at the Eugene Pioneer Cemetery, some of whom are rumored to make appearances above ground. Students taking a shortcut to class have famously seen a woman floating in a fog dressed in white and a man playing bagpipes in full regalia who dissolves behind trees or old monuments. The large, old-growth trees in the cemetery keep the grounds dark and cool while their roots fracture old headstones. For the best chance at a sighting, visit when the church bells across the street strike 10 p.m. Luper Cemetery -Eugene

Luper Cemetery, located just outside of Eugene, is one of the oldest in the area. Seventeen of those buried here were colonists who arrived on the Oregon Trail. The isolation of this cemetery adds to the scare factor: it’s hidden by trees, surrounded by open fields. The area has been repeatedly vandalized and now has increased security. Only visit this cemetery during the day in your attempt to connect with the dead or you might get reported for trespassing.

Bohemia Mountain -Cottage Grove

Deep in the Umpqua National Forest is Bohemia Mountain, full of abandoned mines and a ghost town left behind by the rugged men who spent their days working here. Exploring the ghost town on the trail is immediately spooky. Bones of old structures and abandoned, rusty tools make it feel as though the people living and working here disappeared in the middle of some task. Many men died hauling out the modern equivalent of more than $30 million worth of gold and silver. Visitors today might encounter the ghost of a prospector or two who lost their lives to the treacherous mines or a greedy fellow gold hunter.
