Did you know: The designer of the Xbox 360 controller had a wish to make a controller looking like an animal. After experimenting with many species, he settled with bat, but there is a rare prototype in the shape of a gibbon.
Thought of the day: First thing we noticed about hiking in Portland was the foliage. There were giant green trees everywhere and plenty of tiny waterfalls and streams trickling out of every corner. That's the benefit of having rain for pretty much 9 months of the year.
Food for thought:
Juicy grilled burger with blue cheese, chipotle-blueberry BBQ sauce and fried onion rings. Blueberry!?! Sounds interesting.

Our all too familiar trailhead because in SoCal it usually leads to a vast landscape but in Oregon.....
Everyone told us we brought the SoCal weather w/ us cuz it stopped raining right when we got there and it gave us perfect trails, lush greens and tons of running water.
So I saw this thing on the trail and thought it was just a big fish lure dropped somewhere. Then I got close and saw it moving slowly and got really grossed out.
The song "My Girls" comes to mind when I think of this pictures. Maybe cuz it was an awesome moment or maybe just because Ellen and Rose are my girls; 4 life. For over half my life we've been best of friends. And I love them very much.
