Nope. I'm enjoying the sunny warm weather while I can, we don't get much of it here.

High 80's and sunny for the 5th week in a row... This must be a record.

Just means this winter is going to be miserably sunless, which is fine so long as the flakes keep coming.

The leaves on the birch trees are turning yellow, and there is snow outside the hockey arena.

Always a good sign.

mornings are gettting into the 50's here, days still 80's upper 70's but that is the start of the change over.

HAHAHAHAHA not quite that kind of rafting. Ive done the upper salmon when it was around 70k...but this was more of a relaxing float...of the boise river

I give you, party barge 2.0. 6'x10' deck on 4 55 gallon barrels, comfortably seats 4. This pic was taken after we finished, and we just threw all of out stuff on top of it so we could carry it. The cooler was next to the chair, all of the life jackets were tucked under the chair, we had a radio but it got taken out by a low branch, and we have 3 inflatable rafts we were towing behind so we could get out when it got too shallow over the rapids.

Sweet party barge Idaho. We're just finally getting some summer out here in Western Washington. And even then, we only get a couple of nice days before the clouds and rain show right back up. So no, it is not winter yet, but summer for me has felt more like an early fall or extended spring. I would be OK with a couple more weeks of nice weather before we dive back into winter.
