Olympus Waits

My plans to hike up the Hoh River and up Mt. Olympus the past few days were thwarted by illness. I don't get sick very often (*knock on wood*), but this one knocked me down pretty hard and I'm still recovering. It's probably just as well -- the past few days the temperature has jumped dramatically so it would have been uncomfortably hot and the snow melt is very likely up.

The heat has been great in the garden, however! Squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, and tomatoes are finally beginning to look like they may produce something this year.

With August half over already, I'm really beginning to feel that I am not going to get everything done that I was hoping to before fall arrives.Perhaps we'll have an Indian summer...
