Once again it is ungodly hot here in Portland, and my plan is to soak it up in preparation for three months of sunless rainy winter and fall. Tomorrow, at the crack of 9 am my house and I are going to do the McNeil Point loop on Mt Hood. The hike will be hot and up hill most of the way, but if we are lucky there will still be plenty of snow to roll around in!Not too much has been going on, or maybe so much stuff that I can't really remember it all. The most interesting nights are always the ones you can't quite remember. But here are some pictures to fill in the gaps for both of us: We had our family reunion at an awesome spot on the Oregon side of the Columbia River in the Gorge, and we decided that we just couldn't get enough of each other, so the pictures below are from the reunion after party.
My Dad, two of my cousins, and I exploring Oregon's longest cave on one of the hotter days of the year. It was about 103 degrees outside, but stayed a constant 43 degrees inside of the cave.

Chris looking more serious than he generally is
The morning after a long night of drinks and cranium
A strange dead fish we found washed up on the beach
One of many spiders in our house, we have identified it as a "Hobo Spider" he must have left all of his worldly possessions in his bindle elsewhere.

A video I took out of the car driving to "work" at the Saturday Market. The Portland Bridge Pedal was going on.
