Mt. Tabor and Mt. Hood — a couple of my favorite mountains!
After dropping Suzi off at work, I observed my morning ritual of reading and relaxation. Headed home in the steady rain, I happened to look east. Rather than being the expected gray sky, there was a developing sunrise.1 Mmm… :-)
- In the other direction was a rainbow, as high as you could ever hope to see. ↩
Morning colors over Mount Hood.
This past weekend, we had the honor of attending the wedding of a long-time family friend. The setting was magnificent and the bride, jubilant.
Congratulations, Camille and Christian! Thank you for inviting us to share in your special day. We wish you all the best!
An early morning flight out of PDX — another look out the dirty window.
Posted from 30,000 feet on the return flight. :-)
I hiked from Lake Wahtum to Chinidere Mountain with Rob and Ted E. Bear (a standard poodle). The weather was great, as was the scenery: clear views of Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, and a peek at the Three Sisters.
This hike is worth repeating.1 :-)
Though there are so many other great hikes, I might not.
Sorry for getting all scientific with the flowers’ names. ;-)
I will sleep well tonight and that hot shower this evening was especially nice. ↩
My multi-purpose business-personal-conference-fun trip is over. I flew from the Orange County airport (SNA) to Portland (PDX) yesterday afternoon. For some unknown reason, I ended up in first class (honest, I didn’t ask for it, but it was a wonderful birthday gift).
