In the summertime, when the weather is fine…

It seems like a summer wrap-up post is always required round here. Last summer I was so busy playing in the mud and building things that I didn’t have time to blog. This summer I was busy making pizza and drinking in the sun and plotting social uprisings and falling in love. Fortunately, my camera is always on hand to document my escapades, so the 2013 edition of this annual post can now be presented to you.

Let’s see…

In May I hiked a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, tromping through 4 feet of snow while enjoying 80 degree weather.

In June I completed my first independent timber framing project – I cut the frame for a solarium. Then I went to Klamath Falls, kidnapped my boyfriend, and carried him off to Bend.

In July I enjoyed many long sunny days spent at the Riverside Market, watching dogs pant (Oreo is seen above), talking to people, trying new beers, and plotting my next big adventure.

I also explored the Maury Mountains during a camping trip with Jonah.

In August my summer work gig with the Pizza Cart became a full time affair, with late nights spent rolling thousands of pizza skins, and days spent working things like BrewFest and Kaleidoscope Music Festival.

And on my birthday, in early September, I made it up onto McKenzie Pass where I checked out big mountains and big lava flows and a strange little tower.

There are still a few days of summer left, but in my mind it ends with the start of school and my birthday. Autumn is my favorite season, and this year it is shaping up to be pretty interesting. I am leaving Bend, OR in a few days for a brief roadtrip around this state and then Jonah and I are hopping a train and heading to Pittsburgh to try our hands at city and east coast life – and I’ll have my camera there to capture the details, and a couple hundred pictures of the fall foliage too.

Until then, cheers!
