After a stretch of hibernation in my Portland den, I finally got a few rolls developed. They stretch back months, but are so much fun to look back at. It’s been a weird winter, with little rain at all. It’s the eighth of January, and it seems as spring has come early. The usual rain clouds have given way to blue skies and the birds are filling up the trees with their songs. It seems as if the seasons have been turned on their head.
Olivia and I “car camped” in the back of my Subaru several months ago at Silver Falls State Park. Although we didn’t get a chance to see every fall, we did get a good hike in and got to roast some dogs over the fire. A word to the wise though: putting down the seats of your car hardly qualifies for a comfy night. Next time, I’m bringing my tent with a sleeping bag.
Recently Olivia and I got all the gear to go backpacking. We’re hoping that in short time, we’ll take our adventures over night, into the woods and high lakes of Oregon. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am.
Take it easy and we’ll see you again soon.
