Bonsai

Took a break this afternoon to visit the Japanese Garden, which has an American bonsai exhibit right now.

Flying into Phoenix. Sometimes I forget how relatively compact of a city Portland is.

9,990

At last week’s company meetup some of us set off at 6:00am on Sunday morning to hike 9,990 – the tallest of the peaks right behind Canyons Resort. While the hike started in the rain the weather did eventually clear and we got a wonderful 14+ miles in. The views made it well worth the effort.

About a mile short of the summit the ridge opens up to beautiful views over the valley.

Stu walking carefully. Just behind him is the last section of ropes that guide you along a very uneven and narrow section of the ridge.

Evening sunrise

It’s technically the sunset, but every sunny evening our east-facing apartment gets what feels like a second sunrise. The sun’s reflecting off of a building across the river and gives one last blast of light into our place.
