We delivered a piano to our son who just moved to Redmond, Oregon. While there we helped with jobs around their new house, took the grandkids on a few outings, and I spent a day climbing at Smith Rocks.
It's been hot, in the high 80s and low 90s. But we managed to find a cool side of the rocks to climb on in Mulkey Gulch.
Jack and Sam came to visit with their parents and we did a lot of cool stuff. We did some real work as well as have fun.
Then Ian and Jenny came up with Autumn and Hayden. We only had a few days but we had a great visit and a good time, especially playing in the tree house.
I met up with old best friends in Desolation and Gray canyons of the Green River in Utah. It was a first canyon river trip for their grandkids, and a great time for all. We hiked side canyons, chased lizards, paddled rapids, got good-n-wet, ate great food, slept out under the stars, pondered petroglyphs, climbed some rocks, watched a dragon-fly orgy, made s'mores, played in the sand, and generally didn't think about the modern world and Donald Trump.
