What IS that bright yellow thing in the sky?

I have to admit, I am really enjoying the clear skies we’ve been having lately, after the rain and fog and snow this winter. It feels like I just can’t absorb enough of the light.

Last night, instead of any of my usual commute routes out of downtown, I took a more leisurely drive on Terwilliger Blvd. The sun was just setting, and Mt. Hood was glowing a brilliant pink against a cloudless sky. The bare trees along Terwilliger let me appreciate a spectacular view of the entire Portland area. Coming down the long hill on Vermont, west of Hillsdale, I could enjoy the pinks and oranges of the western sky. What a way to end the week.

This morning, I see another beautiful blue cloudless sky, and I’m determined to get my family out to enjoy it. Maybe we’ll go to the Zoo. Maybe we’ll head up to the Gorge and check out some waterfalls. I don’t know.

How are YOU going to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend?

    just walking around and enjoying the warmth. also, what a beautiful day for the grand opening of the much vilified tram. I bet BoJack and others wished for snow or a lightning storm this weekend to prove the tram is a horror.

    oh, and taking photos of the recent tags in the hood.

    Went golfing at Lake View in Vancouver, a little Par 3 on the shores of Vancouver lake. Saw tons of geese and had a huge eagle touch down in the tree next to us. Pretty…

    Funnest part, though, was that it was ass-cold outside, regardless of the sunny skies. The ground was rock-solid and the small water hazards were frozen over. Made for some interesting shots…
