Back in July, it was so. freaking. hot. Like, I literally can’t ever be too hot, and I was TOO HOT! In a brilliant example of why we’re the smartest people in the world, we decided to take a trip up to Mt. Hood for the day. We packed our lunches, grabbed our hats and fleece, and enjoyed some 60 degree weather. You guys, it 45 degrees at the lodge. It was like HEAVEN! (well, kind of … we were used to 95+, so it felt like -30!)

Alba loved eating her lunch on at rock at Trillium Lake. She was not the biggest fan of the ducks. In all fairness, we were minding our business (vegans don’t feed ducks, duh), and we were surrounded by 5-10 ducks. They were obviously very comfortable with people, as they were literally climbing on us.

After that fiasco, we went up to Timberline for some hiking. Let’s be real, we did hike, but really, I wanted a drink. We stopped at the bar, had drinkies, and some food! Turns out there are exactly two vegan things on the menu. Color me happy.

I might not have fully appreciated the views that day, but looking back at the photos, I’m having extreme gratitude for all of the beauty here in Oregon.
