Look! I’ve finally updated my header photo! This is the waterfront of the Willamette River, of which Portlanders seem to be very proud. They should be, I suppose. Folks can run, bike, skate, or just eat lunch in a sidewalk cafe (It seems that the weather is almost always perfect for sidewalk dining here.) while watching picturesque sailboats float by. Being from dry, dry, Colorado, I’m particularly impressed. I haven’t seen so much water in one place for years and years … since my last road trip, actually.

While I’m in total road-trip mode, my header will probably always be a few days behind me. It will be in Portland while I’m at the seashore, on the beach while I’m watching A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Ashland, and in Ashland while I’m hiking in Moab.
