SUMMER IS HERE!!!
It's been a little grey here lately, but now the sun is shining and summer has arrived...
Time to go for my first official walk of the summer here in Portland! Going to hit my regular local hood spot, Powell Butte.
We take different trails all the time, and some of them have great little streams for me drink from. Cool and refreshing...
It's so great to look around and everything I see is GREEN - back in Los Angeles I understand that it's been dry and over 100 degrees for the last few weeks. That always made me tired (and mom cranky) and my skin all flaky. No such problems so far here in Portland...
It's easy to forget, walking through the forest, that there is actually wildlife here - the only thing wild that I've seen so far has been bunnies (which I'd like to get closer to if dad could let up a little on the flexi-leash) but I hear there are deer and other critters too.
Ah, at the top. It's clear and beautiful today, lots of good smells, and a great view of Mt. Hood.
Summer in the city... and what a great city it is!!!
