Cool Summer Rolls Right Along . . .

Funny how we were worried about the snow lasting into the summer a few months ago. Cool temperatures have produced one of the best early summer ski seasons in recent memory (as well as one of the worst years for growing vegetables). Skiers frequenting the southern edge of Mount Rainier National Park have continued skiing to within a few hundred feet of the car into late July, and the conditions on some of Rainier's more difficult routes has been nothing short of stellar.

Rainier looked like this on July 17th . . . check out the coverage in the Fuhrer Finger!

Meanwhile, I've been attending a few bike races. My son Jordan was moved up to Category II on the track just in time for the biggest race of the year at the Marymoor Velodrome, the FSA Grand Prix. I'm not sure if this was a good thing or not, as the level of competition was pretty stiff, but he acquitted himself well . . .

Jordan gives them a run for the money on the Marymoor Velodrome track in one his last Cat. III races.   Amara Boursaw photo
