Laying by the river, looking up to the stars and moon.

Thank God the cold is gone, it’s finally June!

Cliff jumping at Steelhead Falls today, always a thrill.

In the High Desert heat, the river offers a welcomed chill.

Tomorrow, hiking at Gray Butte and Smith Rock Park

Laying by the Deschutes and listening to the coyotes in the dark.

One last rain shower for the Spring and I’m tearing up the dirt roads the next day

The only good thing about when the skies go gray.

Go tubing on and swim across the Palisades

Friends, beer, iced tea, lemonades

Go on a trip to the Pacific shore

Moe’s Restaurant, swimming, sunsets and forts built during the Second World War

Take a trip to Montana, go through Yellowstone on the way

Some of God’s most magnificent Creation on display.

Hiking, church, swimming in the river, backpacking trips

Off roading, long country cruises and the Great American Eclipse

Born and raised in the boondocks, I would not have it any other way

Than living up a summer day
