I’ve been to Oregon more times than I can count.
I’ve never experienced a heat wave here like I have the last couple days.
(I think it hit 103F!)
Yesterday morning, I tried to get some exercise before it got too hot.
I went for a hike and quickly remembered why Oregon is close to my heart.

It is so beautiful.
There is so much nature here.
It’s so very, very, green …!
(I didn’t touch the vibrancy and/or saturation of the above photo.)
I’ve been having a nice few days with my parents.
I’m really glad I made the long drive here.
I’m starting to work on details for my eventual return trip.
I’m having trouble getting hotels when, and where, I want to.
Apparently, a lot of people are on vacations in Oregon and California?
I expect it will all work out.
I’m getting very familiar with sketchy hotels in sketchy neighborhoods.
