We were in Portland for the week, seeing the Dye’s and teams I work with daily. This trip was better than the last since we had no rain. The down side was all the forest fires and ash. Andrea couldn’t do any hikes because everything was closed due to the fires. It was probably best since there was a large group of hikers that got stranded and had to spend the night on the mountain before leaving at daybreak to complete a 14 mile hike in order to get to a place where they could be rescued.
It was great seeing Chris, Mindette and Elle. Didn’t get any pics of Elle and the dogs but I’m sure she’ll have one of her own come Christmas.
