There’s no time like mid-October to wrap up the summer, right? I’ve reached the point where I am so far behind on life documentation that I’m afraid I’ll forget everything we did this summer. But it’s kind of nice to stay in solidarity with these seasonal blog posts, yes? (Check out winter and spring, if you’d like.)
It was a bit of a wild summer in Oregon, with weeks of 100+ degree temperatures (we don’t have air conditioning, and that is as miserable as it sounds) and wildfires ravaging the Gorge, leading to some scary smoke-filled days in the city.
After finishing grad school and playing in the Canadian Rockies, I still had plenty of funemployment to enjoy (by the way, does anyone need a nutritionist?), so I tried to soak up some good Oregon summertime before the rains arrived (which they have, with gusto).
Without further ado, let’s hit those summer highlights.
