It's been an odd summer. Exceptionally hot for the PNW, which translates into less time outdoors for the not-so-heat-tolerant dog. We purchased a new home, which I had forgotten how much of a time sink that is. I just realized I've done very little day hiking (maybe none, in fact) and all of my trips have been either backpacking (awesome) or kayaking.
Summer seems to have come to an abrupt halt, with the sudden screeching arrival of cooler weather and blessed rain. Looking forward to fall and rebalancing my life with more trail time.
