Will the real PDX carpet please stand up?

Last week I traveled from Portland to the Twin Cities and back and of course, took foot photos of the PDX carpet on my way through the airport.

As I approached my departing gate, I walked across the old carpet and both versions of the new carpet, so, obviously, I got photos of all of them.

(P.S. Maxi skirts and dresses are the best travel clothes, amirite?)

McKenzie River Run – June 28, 2015

I just love saying ‘yes’ to adventures, don’t you?

This past Sunday, I said yes to a friend-guided rafting run down the McKenzie River, east of Eugene, Oregon. We packed a cooler bag full of beer, sandwiches, and snacks, rented life vests (or PFDs), and hopped in.

It’s my third river run ever (having done Colorado’s Arkansas River in 2006 and Costa Rica’s Pacuare in 2012) and another solid reminder that this is, in fact, A Thing I Love to Do.

It’s been just over 24 hours since I got off that river and already, I want to know — how soon can I do that again?
