This year the occasion of our visit to Oregon was Emma’s high school graduation.
Besides the graduation ceremony and other activities to celebrate the event, Ruth had planned a couple of hikes for the time that we were there. One day we did a nice trail along a ridge that overlooked the Applegate Valley.
Another day was a Medford classic, one of the two Table Rock mesas that are north of the city. Our friend from Roseburg drove down for the day to join us.
The last day that we were there we got a tour of Green Mountain Woodworks, the company where Aaron works.
At the end of June we were thrilled that our favorite Celadon truck had a route that would be passing through Albuquerque with enough time for a lunch stop. Nathan was able to travel with Mike for part of the summer, which meant we would be able to see both of them. We extended the time spent with them by meeting up on their route through Gallup and again on the day of downtime that they had in Phoenix after the load was delivered.
