It's still hot.

A few days ago my dear friend Drunk Fox suggested having some gin to cool down. That suggestion didn't work as well as I would have liked and I haven't made any of the recipes that I posted in the blog (it's too hot to cook).

 As I was watching some TV I came across this "retro" commercial for Mt Hood and I knew I needed to take a trip to the mountains (and try and find some Old Milwaukee Light if I can).

 My hike took us along the Vista Ridge trail.  Throughout the hike I came across signs like this.  Whew, good think I left my hang glider at home.   I would not want to be in trouble with the forest service.
Along the trail you caught glimpses of Mt. Hood but at the end of the hike (and the lunch spot) Mt Hood really came out to shine. 
Just a fox relaxing on my backpack.  Where is my peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
My roommates decided that it was time  to start heading back down the trail.  My hike was a good respite from the heat, how do you stay cool without AC in the heat?  This little fox is looking for any suggestions. 


  1. A nice cold glass of lemonade with ice cubes helps... Jerry also suggests asking your seKretaries, with beary sad eyes, to stock up on ice cream because its coolness helps you to cool down.

  2. Lemonade, brilliant. Does the beary sad eye trick really work?

  3. have you climbed Mount Hood before? is it on the list of things for your secretaries to do?

    1. Climbing Mt. Hood might be too ambitious for me and my sekrebearies. Although there is a hot chocolate/coffee shop about 1/3rd of the way up on the mountain that I might visit.
