Table Mountain 7/18/15

The weather in Portland has been, let's put it mildly, off-putting lately. This is not a city for 90+ degrees. Our fair city is supposed to be no more than 80F with occasional grey skies and rain in the summer. I have yet to see a decent downpour this summer and my house despite all the precautions is a sauna sans AC. However I am determined not to give in!

June 2015

After a total of 15 years of college (on and off, mostly off) I finally graduated with a BA in Social Science from Portland State. Social Science is a degree you end up with then you cannot afford to quit your day job and take classes during the day like all the regular students at PSU.

Saddle Mountain - 05/09/2015

First time on Saddle Mountain - I wish someone would set up a water/coffee/ice cream cart in the parking lot.
