A couple days back some co-workers and I took the gondola up the mountain for a short hike. The gondola itself is a pretty great ride.

Last weekend Leah and I were in Sunriver, OR. On Saturday we spent the afternoon hiking up the Green Lakes trail which winds you up the east side of the Cascades between South Sister and Broken Top. The weather was perfect with cool weather and blue skies.
