Kitchen

The bar stools have finally arrived (great customer service form Alchemy Collections after a little snafu in the ordering process), which pretty much completes the kitchen.

Fourth of July Trip

Patio is staked out, pouring was happening this week (slowed by it being absolutely scorching).

Lewis Butte Circle trail run

Got a chance to run around Lewis Butte this weekend. Ideally one should probably start at the Riser lake parking lot so that most of the climb is at the beginning.

Trail up to Lewis Butte. Will doc this route soon.

Frosty Aspens

Today the aspens had a thick layer of frost, aided by the fog.  Standing under them ting ting as the ice fell off the trees.

On Saturday we went for a hike to Goat Peak lookout (didn’t make it all the way due to carrying a three year old on my shoulders and snow). On the way back down we came around a corner and saw this:

Paragliding! Others were launching from just down the road, and they flagged us down to drive their car back down to Mazama. Here is “David” launching
