summer is officially here! errr, rather the weather reports it to be summer.
what is typically three months of leisurely daylight is now at the mercy of mother nature and all the glory that is the PNW. one of the joys of portland, oregon living is the easy access to mount hood, the coast, and the numerous adventures along the way. so what should you do with yourself this year? i've rounded up a few of the wonderful things i have taken advantage of while living in portland, oregon, consider this a suggestion of things to do when it's sunshine time!
