Summits: 1340

July 21 – Aug 8 » Oregon

Oregon was…busy, in a good way. I had expected a little more downtime, sitting around a lake reading kind of thing, but felt so good after warming up in California  and kept finding interesting things on the map to check out. I ended up tagging 19 summits including a few volcanoes, going for  a fun and challenging 130 mile 3-day bike ride, and even rafting the Clackamas River with an old friend from San Diego. This near 3-week block of time in Oregon will be hard to beat…
