Bro-in-law and I went out for a quick hike the other afternoon. It was raining, cold and the perfect afternoon to get outside and enjoy a good, short climb in the local hills. We headed out to the falls and went south rather than NW to the falls themselves. We followed single track for a couple miles. Jon got in front of me for the last 3/4 of a mile and pushed us to the top where we rested for a while and took in the quiet and the view while night began to move in on us. We ended up about 500 feet above the valley floor on a little mountain - 6000 feet in the air.
Here is Jon preparing some tea in his super hi-tech, miniature stove that can boil water at altitude in 2.5 minutes flat. Yummy.

We've been enjoying a beautiful fall here in Central Oregon. Lately Eli and I have ventured out in search of some good old fashioned adventure. We've gone on hikes, tromped through unfinished houses, thrown rocks in the river, chased cats, watched hawks soar through the sky in search of food, had lightsaber duels in the middle of the living room and other good boy stuff. A couple times Poppi and Grandma Great joined us for a hike. Good times.
