Mars, brighter than it's been since 2003, majestically rising over Mt Hood. I raced over to Lost Lake last Friday night with the goal of getting the Milky Way's reflection off the lake with Hood in the background. The wind had a different idea, but I was okay with it.
I sat out on a log, listening to DMB (so I couldn't hear the critters around me and they would know I came in peace 🙏) watching an insane amount of shooting stars. Before me was Perseids, a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift–Tuttle. My hoots and hollers may have awoken some lakeside campers, but I'm sure they'd understand 😏
Happy 2nd Birthday to my pretty girl! 🎉 She’s the best adventuring pal, cuddler, lovebug, and the most happy and goofy dog around. She’s one of the biggest blessings in my life and I’m forever grateful! 💕🎈
