I try to explore the outdoors as much as possible. Living in Portland makes it easy. We have the most beautiful landscapes, and I catch myself saying, "Wow" I live here, each time I venture out and I discover something new. Last weekend we did a loop around Mt. Hood and stopped off periodically along the way. One of my favorite spots was heading to Trillium Lake. The last time and only time I was there was by cross country skiing to it. The mountain was not visible and we actually skied over the lake. It was beautiful, but not as striking as seeing it on a crisp fall day in the reflection of the still lake. Wow, I live here.
