The lakes and mountains have thawed.
The smell of burnt hot dogs and hamburgers waft through the air in the evening followed by smores. The smell of bacon fills the campgrounds in the morning which combined with the sunrise and nature is pure beauty.
The feeling of sunburns and mosquito bites.
Summer is here in the Northern Hemisphere. It was 100 degrees in normally cool and moist Portland Oregon in the past few days. It was so hot here that we on the building events council (aka Ministry of Mischief) decided to hold a surprise popup ice cream event in the office to cool down employees.
Some of my photos from last weekend that made it feel like summer had arrived.
I have a sabbatical this summer and planning so many fun trips outdoors camping, swimming, and hiking, as well as some volunteering projects. I hope you have some fun things on your summer calendar planned.
