Ending a season well is as important as how one starts it out. Or at least that is my excuse for backpacking with my boys on the last three days of Spring (and the boys' first days of summer vacation, too!). In a week and a half, I'll be on a short two-night car camp trip with a bunch of friends along the Mattole River (in Northern CA, and happens to be on my birthday), then me and the boys hit the road for Spokane and my sister's place for a couple weeks. Once home, I have two weeks before work starts. Summer seems much too short when it is all planned out! I have two months off during the summer, yet it still seems too short --- spoiled brat that I am!LOL!
But then I like Fall Winter and Spring around here, too. Being in the cooler coastal clime, we tend to take max advantage of any summer sun -- heading inland if the fog persists. The fog can burn off finally at 3pm, then sock back in at 4pm! Time for me to pull the 3 rolls of 6x6 negs out of the drier that mark the end to Spring and the beginning of Summer!
