Welcome to America’s Bicycle Capital

On a bit of a whim I found myself back in the Pacific Northwest this month for a brief jaunt in an unfamiliar city and a welcome reminder of the beauty of spontaneity. I spent a long weekend in Portland breathing in fresh air and profiting from the beautiful Oregonian summer. There is something about this part of the country that is truly enchanting. The trees, the sky, the light…I love it all. Some highlights from the trip include visiting a waterfall I would only have imagined as the backdrop for a Lord of the Rings film, attending Rex Hill winery’s anniversary party, and my first true coffee experience (I’m still warming up to the idea).
