This year Jake and I haven't gone as many weekend adventures as we did last year. However, we still do better than the aver-er-age bear! Recently, we went on an easy 2-mile hike to a huge suspension bridge over a beautiful gorge in the Coast Range. I have yet to meet an Oregonian that has been to this bridge even though it is only about an hour and a half away from my house. It's so true how tourists see things that locals never do! Though I have a permanent address and place of employment, I really am more of a tourist than an Oregonian.
This weekend we borrowed two sets of snow shoes from a friend and had planned to go on an overnight backpacking trip (from our list of things we better do now 'cause we won't next year). However, after sleeping for 11 hours last night and enjoying a leisurely breakfast, we only have about 5 hours of daylight left. SO, maybe not this weekend... but soon!
