Breezy, Cool, and Low Light Morning

It is a Breezy, Cool, and Low Light Morning here at Cascades.
Honestly, it is about as nice for hiking as you could hope for!
Be aware that there is a low probability storm rolling through after 11 a.m.

This Sunday will be the Solstice, the longest day of the year.
It seems only fitting that this should be embraced and celebrated by those of us who live, play, and work outdoors.
Put it on your calendar!
Go for a hike!
Watch the sun set into twilight!

Otherwise things are calm out there on Trust lands and trails, and a lot of office work is going on behind the scenes.
