The heat has been unusually oppressive here in the Pacific Northwest, so we took a 30 minute drive to the Columbia River Gorge. There are over 70 waterfalls on the Oregon side of the gorge and miles of hiking trails. This wild and windy canyon is breathtaking, and is one of the reasons we decided to move to Oregon.

|Still lush in this beautiful ecosystem|
|Lots of negative ions|
|Wahkeena Falls - a great place to fill up water bottles with icy cold water from Mt. Hood|
|Beautiful trails - lots of shade|
It was nice to get away from endless summertime house projects and return home refreshed and relaxed.
Hope your Sunday was peaceful.
