Summer Guide 2014

Let’s face it — we had a rough winter. OK, so maybe we didn’t weather the so-called “polar vortex,” but with two snowstorms, an ice storm of epic proportions and temperatures plummeting to below 7 degrees in December, there were plenty of “what the hell?!” moments. 

Now, clear your mind of all that, breathe in the warm breeze and exult in the beautiful thing that is an Oregon summer. And what a summer it is: sand castle building and rock climbing, concerts and county fairs, baseball games and a plethora of races and marathons sure to satisfy the most avid of track lovers.  Fire up the barbecue because summer is here!
